The couple waved goodbye to the UK as they embarked on a sea journey from Southampton to their new home.
Mr King Turner says he "lives from day to day".
He said he felt it might be "rather fun to move to New Zealand", adding that his wife, who is from the country, was getting homesick. The couple, who shared the same surname prior to their marriage, met when the New Zealand King-Turner family visited the UK to research their origins.
Mr King-Turner, who served on HMS Invincible during World War I, admitted he had not seen everything in the UK that he would have liked, but had seen much of Europe. Mr King-Turner said the move had been planned months ahead, although he added: "I have to live from day to day. "I can't seriously look past tomorrow morning because at my age people go to bed at night and they don't wake up in the morning. I'm resigned to that. But Lifesshort and there isn't a moment to waste. I don't feel I've wasted any in my 102 years !"
Lifesshort wishes Mr King-Turner continued fun times. He really knows our manifesto.
