1968 RMS Queen Elizabeth Last Visit to Gibraltar
1968 RMS Queen Elizabeth Last visit to Gibraltar, Gibraltar paquebot postmark.
RMS Queen Elizabeth was a Cunard ocean liner built by John Brown & Company at Clydebank. With the outbreak of war, she entered service in 1940 as a troopship so it was not until October 1946 that she served in her intended role as an ocean liner operating between Southampton and New York. Named in honour of Queen Elizabeth, the wife of King George VI, she was the largest passenger liner ever built, a title held for 56 years. She was replaced by the QE2 in 1969 and sold to a businessman when she caught fire and capsized whilst undergoing refurbishments in Hong Kong harbour.
