The Atlantic Conveyor was designed on the Tyne by Swan Seeker and provided to Cunard in 1970 as aspect of their participation to the Ocean Package Range range. It would go on to be sunk in the 1982 Falkland Isles issue, where it provided as an airplane boat.

Would that be Tony H by any chance? Was on the Conveyor as deck cadet when she was laid up in Liverpool. I think I spent a few weeks with you sorting out the shower stalls in the unoccupied cabins. Then sailed with you on one of the S Class where I remember you chasing me around the main deck after I made an irreverent comment about your missus! I also remember a couple of stories the late Andy Pritchard told about you - one of which included a goat and a life jacket! Hope you are ok Tony. Good times. Paul B.
