Hello Stuart,

White Star Line "Asqania"? - Do you mean the Cunard liner Aquitania?
Ships ending in "ia" were Cunard. White Star ships ended in "ic".

Hello Lester,
My apologies! I meant `Ascania`
This ship was the last that my father served on before leaving the sea altogether.
He joined her (according to his `Continuous Certificate of Discharge`) at London, on 8th Sept` `38 - bound for Montreal.
I should imagine that this was when my father obtained the postcards.
The caption on each card states (bottom left) "Cunard White Star" and (bottom right) the name of the vessel - "Ascania".
Hope this clarifies things - again, my apologies...
Stuart.

Hello Stuart,

Yes thank you. While I have never heard of the Ascania."Cunard White Star" with a likely date of ca. 1938 clarifies things.
