Steering Clear


On this day in 1936 after departing Clydebank the previous day, the RMS Queen Mary was undergoing preliminary tests of her steering in the open water off the Isle of Arran. Trials were undergone at three-quarter speed as she journeyed to Southampton for drydock; her official speed trials were scheduled for the second week of April.
