Cunard Memories

I thought I posted this yesterday. It is my first one and I think I sent it to an incorrect 'forum'. Here it is again:

I found this site quite by accident today and this is my first message. My old menus from various Cunard vessels were gathering dust in a carton, and I thought about putting them on EBay. One thing led to another and I landed at Ships Nostalgia.

Immediately I searched for any photos, tidbits about my beloved Cunard Ships. I got a smile out of someone's request looking for dear Alan Bennell. Alan and I were friends during the 1970s. At one time I actually 'worked' for Cunard for a day at the NY port terminal. It was during the strike and they needed extra personnel to help passengers board the QE2. I was there to check passports and tickets.

Eventually we lost track of one another. The last letter I received from him was in the early '80s when he told me he had the big 'C'. Needless to say, I was heartbroken. I have very fond memories of Alan, his friends, and the Franconia, Adventurer, Countess and QE2.

Maybe I won't sell those old menus.

From Michigan, a warm welcome to Ships Nostalgia, cybersalem.
Browse through our forums and galleries--there's a wealth of information on Cunard to be found here. Chances are you'll probably be hearing from old shipmates before long.

Bruce

Welcome from Lancashire.

Don't sell your menus - get a decent binder and keep them for your children and grandchildren as a souvenir. You'll only get a few quid for them on eBay.

I hope you enjoy the site.

Regards,

Brian

Regarding CUNARD memories
Some body some time back asked after Ron Bolton.
Sadly, I heard yesterday, he passed away on the 2nd November - lung cancer.
Also that Captain Peter Jackson also has cancer and not doing too well.
