Kyle - GREAT video. Really surreal seeing it with just one and two funnels! Who is the captain in the video? I can't quite make out the name, but hes the same captain in the launch video:


The individual web archive images I posted don't load but if you click the website link, you can get to them. Interesting article.

hmmm... maybe it's the "It Look" for Cunard Captains

The captain in the Conversion video was her last, John Treasure Jones, ringing "finished with engines" for the final time... or at least for the cameras.

The captain in the Launch/Maiden Voyage video was her first, Edgar T. Britten.
