Galley Provisioning in 1962

Hello Folks,

I've just added a shipping order transcript for vegetables to the
Caronia Timeline, which raises one or two questions.

The Caronia was sailing from Liverpool to New York via the West Indies, with
no call at Southampton. A fair proportion of the foodstuffs ordered, especially
the frozen foods, would need to come to Liverpool from the U.S.A. My questions
revolve around the logistics of this - would they despatch this on one of the
Queen's and take it by train or coaster from So'ton to Liverpool, or would
they have gone by coaster from the U.S.A to Canada and thence to Liverpool
on a Cunarder?
