From The Sydney Morning Herald on this day in 1936:
SEA AND AIR SERVICE.
Inaugurated at Cherbourg.
(British Official Wireless.)
When the Cunard-White Star liner Queen Mary docked at Cherbourg yesterday morning, a new air service for travellers to Central Europe was inaugurated. Several passengers left at once in an air liner with Budapest as its final destination.
The Queen Mary's time from New York was 4 days 14 hours 15 minutes.
When the Queen Mary reached Southampton, it was stated that she would enter the King George V. graving dock on Wednesday. Her engines are to be tuned up, and she will not sail again until July 22.
