Great, Unpublished History!

Two WW2 servicemen. Two accounts of the same very special voyage upon the iconic Queen Mary in 1943, taking allied troops from Scotland to Egypt.

  •  "I relieved Tommy as lookout on the quarter deck, he reported Queen Mary sighted with HMS Curacao in the fare of her. What happened in the next few moments was too quick to be true, unfortunately it was true.
  • "For three days, I didn’t care whether I lived or died; that’s how bad it was. I would never forget Christmas 1942
  • "The escort for the American trip was organised like a relay race, with six destroyers positioned in pairs across the Atlantic.
