Two sad shots of this 1938 Cammell Laird built liner in December 1965 a few weeks after she arrived at Inverkeithing for scrap.Her illustrious 1907 predecessor was also broken up on the Forth at Rosyth.

Remember seeing her on a family holiday on the Isle of Wight (long before I started taking photographs unfortunately) looming from behind the trees at Cowes whilst we were waiting for the Queen Mary to sail from Southampton. My dad took a picture of QM, I'll have to look through the old family photographs to see if he also took one of the Maruetania.
We had a good laugh at other peoples expence after the QM had passed, watching the bow wave run along the sea wall and at least one couple didn't see it coming... brilliant.
