Good Sailor


From The Age on this day in 1954:

Good Sailor 

The liner Queen Mary had one of the worst crossings of her history.

At the beginning of the voyage the Queen Mother inspected the liner and attended a dinner in her honor, but from Saturday onwards she kept to her cabin.

Captain C.I. Thompson, commodore of the Cunard line, who brought the ship across the Atlantic, said of the Royal passenger: "She is a wonderful sailor and has been very happy, not minding the bad weather at all."

She is pictured above with Queen Mary in 1950.
