Notes

Caption title.

RMS Queen Elizabeth was an ocean liner built in the 1930s which sailed the Atlantic Ocean for the Cunard Line (then the Cunard White Star Line) and was contracted to carry the Royal Mail. The Queen Elizabeth was then used as a troop transport during the war. Together with the Queen Mary, and in competition with the SS United States, the Queen Elizabeth dominated the transatlantic passenger trade until their fortunes began to decline with the advent of the faster and more economical jet airliner in the late 1950s. Cunard retired both ships in 1969.
