RMS Queen Elizabeth

RMS ( Royal Mail Ship ) Queen Elizabeth was an ocean liner operated by the Cunard Line 

on an  express service between Southampton and New York via Cherbourg.

Built by John Brown and Company in Clydebank and launched on 27 September 1938.

Queen Elizabeth was a slightly larger ship than her sister ship the Queen Mary 

and the largest passenger liner to have been built  - a record not exceeded for fifty-six years.

The Queen Elizabeth entered service in February 1940 as a troopship in the Second World War

and not did begin service as an  ocean liner until October 1946

The Queen Elizabeth and the Queen Mary maintained a two ship weekly transatlantic service

from Southampton to New York for over twenty years. 

In 1969 both ships were replaced by RMS Queen Elizabeth 2.
