Berengaria

In the August 2015 issue of History Today, Roland Quinault has published an interesting article entitled “Churchill and the Cunarders” in which he describes Winston Churchill’s relationship with the Cunard shipping line. The article describes Churchill’s many trips aboard the company’s liners (on his first crossing of the Atlantic in 1895 he travelled aboard the Cunard liner Etruria), the 1935 article he wrote about the Cunard’s then new liner the Queen Mary, and his employment of Cunard’s ships as troop carriers in both world wars. The History Today website is available here.

Churchill’s return crossing of the Atlantic aboard the Cunard liner Berengaria (pictured above) after his three month tour of Canada and the United States is described in my own book Churchill in North America, 1929.
