HISTORY -- In 1934 the new liner was launched by Queen Mary as RMS Queen Mary. On her way down the slipway, Queen Mary was slowed by eighteen drag chains, which checked the liner's progress into the Clyde, a portion of which had been widened to accommodate the launch. When she sailed on her maiden voyage from Southampton, England on 27 May 1936, she was commanded by Sir Edgar T. Britten, who had been the master designate for Cunard White Star whilst the ship was under construction at the John Brown shipyard.

[ONLY 1 AVAILABLE]

CONDITION -- Good

HISTORY -- Seven ships of the Royal Navy have been named Warspite. The origins of the name are unclear, although it is probably a pun on the word 'spite', in part embodying contempt for the Navy's enemies, but also the common name for the green woodpecker, suggesting the 'Warspite' would poke holes in enemy ships' (wooden) hulls. This HMS Warspite (03) was a Queen Elizabeth-class battleship launched in 1913. She served in the First World War and in numerous operations in the Second World War, earning the most battle honours of any Royal Navy ship. She ran aground on her way to be broken up in 1947 and was scrapped in 1950.
