    sailed on the Lizzie (Q E )from June 1967 to November 1968, started as a tourist waiter ended up in the first class Restaurant, it was a great ship, I thoroughly enjoyed my time on her, had some fantastic times.

    Two Jags, very good mate of mine John Reagan, now in Fiddlers Green told me a story about him.
    Apparently he had a very nasty cut on his face, according to John he had said something untoward to one guy and then fell against his fist.
    Very unfortunate event as the guy he spoke to only wanted to shake his hand.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    Life is too short to blend in.

    In Oct 1958 i was a deck boy, registered in Dock st , london,8 deck boys were sent down to Southampton, one of us 8 was sent to the Lizzie, and the remaining 7 of us went on the Stirling Castle. We arranged to meet the one guy on the Lizzie that evening, hoping to get aboard, but that was not allowed. The only Cunard ship i sailed on was one trip on the Alsatia, strangely its the one ship i have very little memory of, kt

    Good one John, even the small cargo ships seemed to have a queen or two on board.
