  1. Am reading about Queen Mary and Elizabeth, Carthage, Maloja, Johan De Witt and others carrying servicemen and civilians to and from UK in 1945 and 1946.

    Whats the book?

    I don't have any idea what the abbreviations mean, but I could probably make some up.
  3. I'm happy to listen to anything. What's your thoughts
  4. ATS - Auxiliary Territorial Service
    FO - Foreign Office
    MAP - Ministry of Aircraft Production?
  5. OK I'll go for these three - only four to go.

    The book was out of the Library and I returned it last week. Quite an old book - title was something like "Ocean liners at war and peace" or something like that. I really didn't pay much attention to the title but there were many remarks about the two big Queens, Aquitania, Maloja, Carthage and Johan De Witt being involved as well as others whose names I can't recollect at present. Obviously the author didn't know what these abbreviations meant, or he would probably have explained them

    The thread related to the reference to Liners in 1946/47 bringing back servicemen, cot-cases and official civilians from overseas to Britain, and also taking servicemen and official civilians overseas from Britain
  6. British Ambassador?

    Bloody Awful Light Infanteer - Always Pissed.

    Only one of these is a serious suggestion
