You're blessed to have a real gift in delivery of "old war stories"; had my wife read the German merchant ship one and watched for her reaction as she burst out laughing...

Forgot to mention that I too remember at least one occasion of donning life vests, reporting deck-side for a lifeboat drill, and perhaps roll-call? (seem to remember Mom complaining & would probably be because she hated wind); was wondering if it was custom practice for this affair aboard oceanliners for safety's sake at that time.

Including some more pictures I believe are S.S. United States related: first pic - boarding the ship?; second pic - greeting captain and crew?; third pic - sitting amongst colleagues on board and probably underway. Got a couple more I know of but none outside the ship.
