Dennis Davis - Aboard the Queen Mary

Running time

Department of Veterans' Affairs


We boarded the Queen Mary which was built to take 2000 passengers and probably about 1500 crew. When we moved into, part of our convoy going over to the Middle East, I think it was improved so it could take six or seven thousand troops, but on this occasion, it took 17,000 troops and the swimming pools had three tiers of bunks and every lounge in the place had three tiers of bunks and hammocks slung up on top of that. Every space on board was used.
