"Tramp to Queen"
I have just been reading a book which I am sure will interest many members. " Tramp to Queen" The life story of Captain John Treasure Jones who started his sea going career on a Cardiff tramp in 1921 and ultimately captained " Queen Mary" and finally took her to Long Beach, California in Dec 1967. This book was compiled from manuscripts written by Capt Treasure Jones himself and subsequently edited by his son-in-law Richard Tennant . The book is on ISBN number 978 0 7524 4625 7 , it is on sale on Waterstones and Amazon web sites A good read for those who were at sea [Like myself] in Merchant Navy and also RNR in the War in the Atlantic.
