Sprung from Southampton



From the Spokane Daily Chronicle on this day in 1955:

"STOWAWAY" RETURNS - Richard David Martin, 27-year-old former Ohio State university student from Cleveland who "stowed away" on the liner Queen Mary after a bon voyage party last June...After spending three days in a Southampton jail...was allowed to land at Cherbourg. He later toured Europe and was accompanied by [finacee] Miss Boyd.
