That makes u slightly older than I, and a little younger than methuslia! Have you a beard to boot, or just a scyth and and egg timer.
I am sure as entertainments officer you have a few tales to tell, while crossing the atlantic to the USA, or was the queen mary on a different run?
By the way wellcome.

Well, I'm 70 now. but still haven't managed to grow a beard! I am wondering how old you have to be before you can tell all! As well as doing the final transatlantic on the QM, I was a paying passenger on the maiden voyage of the QM2. There I met a very old gentleman who had also made the maiden voyage of QM1. Amazing! Yet although Cunard knew this fact, they made no recognition of it and made him pay his fare as well!
