    Hi Jacky,
    There's lots of old sailors on Yo and we've got our own section - why not post this there?

    Brians' Daley and Aspinall can tell you a bit about Cunard Yanks.

    Here, there & everywhere.


    My pa in law was a Cunard Yank. Dom Volante was the gym instructor on his ship. This reminds me I have a pic of him, my pa in law that is as a 17 year old on The Franconia and he wants us to try and identify the bloke on it who worked in the bakers room. I'll post it up later.

    Updated weekly with old and new pics.
