Please see the following You Tube clip for an interview I did with some Cunard Yanks at a Liverpool History Show a few years ago. Please forward the link to others with an interest as I am not a shipping enthusiast so do not know the relevant groups.

Thank you for posting this, Stephen. Very interesting fellows. Many old(er) seamen will relate to the story, even if we are not from Liverpool. In a similar fashion, we all learned from our travels and brought back something that enriched our own lives.
