in 1965 i was a waiter on the queen mary on the atlantic run which was a bit of a nightmare. the weather in northern mid-atlantic can be like the end of he world at times. but the biggest seas i have ever seen. on the ships return to southampton, ready for a bit of time off we were informed that the mauratia outward bound on a cruise had thrown a propella half way down the solant. and her passengers were coming to us for dinner as compensation while a new prop was attatched. however i did manage to take a walk down the key to have a look at the vessel of our demise. she was painted bottle green and looked like something from the days of titanic, but nethertheless extremely majestic. does anybody have a colour picture of the vessel at this time? and was she built with two funnels? any history would be appreciated.

thanks.

Mauretania

If you go into Gallery, Bellboy and click on Passenger Liners and Cruise Ships, type Mauretania in the search box and you will find a number of photos of her plus a couple of her famous predecessor of the same name.

Bellboy, I have taken the liberty of correcting the spelling of the ship's name in your thread title, so it now reads Mauritania - that way you may have more success when SN members search under the name in their quest to assist you.

Regards

It looks like a member gave the right ship in thread 2.
R58484956,

You did indeed and that was appreciated. I was merely taking your helpful comment a stage further and correcting the thread title and also leaving a comment to that effect. If I had just make the correction without adding a comment, it would have left subsequent postings looking odd.

Kind regards
Tonga
