Cunard Fans – Wonderful Mementos

January 26, 2012

We Are Cunard

Posted in: Guest Stories, Special Guests

Hello all

We thought we’d share with you some of the wonderful things our Cunarders have sent us over the last few weeks. We often receive emails and letters in the post from people who have cruised with us or are fans of Cunard and our ships.

Susie Wiseman from Sydney, Australia sent us some great photos from her friend Keith Moore, who is from Liverpool. Keith’s grandfather Joseph Francis Moore and his father Joseph Paul Moore both worked for Cunard Line in on board Queen Elizabeth and Queen Mary carrying US troops to the UK.

The photos below show Joseph Francis Moore and his wife before he went off to war.

Here is Joseph Francis Moore’s ship ID, as you can see from the date, it expired almost 64 years ago!

Below you can see Joseph Paul Moore’s crew medical card from Queen Mary

Camilla Heinig and Thomas Reise from Germany sent us some photos of a very special birthday gift. Inspired by the puzzle below, Camilla ordered a handcrafted aluminium and copper Queen Mary door sign for her husband’s birthday:

The sign was made by Sylvia Burgold, you can see some of her other creations here:  http://shop.burgold.de/

And here is Thomas looking very pleased with his gift:

The fantastic detailed drawings below were posted to us from one of our younger fans in Holland, who sketched Queen Mary 2 and Queen Elizabeth. We think you’ll agree we have a budding Naval Architect in the pipeline?

We hope you’ve enjoyed looking through these photos and drawings as much as we did, if you have anything you’d like to share with us on the blog please send it through to wearecunard@cunard.co.uk

    Thank you

    The drawings were made by my 10 year old son Lucas Versteegh. A new Cunard fan ;o)

    He is proud to see his drawing here at the website (and so am I)
