Please don’t overlook the M V Brittanic in your celebration.  She was the first motor vessel in the Cunard fleet and served as a troop carrier during WW 2.

Reconditioned after the war, she sailed on her “maiden” voyage from Liverpool to New York in May 1948.  I was a passenger when she sailed triumphantly into New York harbor, I believe on May 26, I believe!  What a supreme moment for Cunard!  She has since been laid to rest, but her memories remain in a young lad’s mind!  Jeffrey Erskine

@Jeff Erskine There is certainly so much history on the M V Brittanic. It looks like the ship was scrapped in 1961, long before my time. Thanks for sharing the reminder to celebrate this momentous occasion! Are you a WW2 Veteran? Have you cruised on any of Cunard's other ships since this occasion?
