Small red carved box won in a bridge game on Queen Mary 1 in 1930


Recommended Posts

My Mother sailed the original Queen in 1930 to England and I treasure a small red carved wood  box she won in a bridge game on that ship.  It fascinated me as a child and I still have it; although I have never sailed Cunard.  Anyone have treasures of old Cunard cruises?

Interesting topic, @lovetosew. I was hoping to have heard of some others' old Cunard treasures by now.


I remember my sister had a felt pennant of RMS Queen Elizabeth we bought from a vendor at the pier after we toured that Cunard liner in New York during the summer of 1961. That short visit to the original Queen Elizabeth was the only time I was ever on a Cunard ship during the 20th century and unfortunately that pennant is long gone.


One ocean liner treasure I have is a small trophy I won for finishing second in a chess tournament on board the SS Nieuw Amsterdam exactly 50 years ago this month during a transatlantic crossing from Le Havre to New York in August 1971. Of course that doesn't count as a Cunard treasure.
