  1. John,
    I came to Canada on the Empress of France in 1948. She only got that name after being converted to a passenger liner from being a troop carrier during WWII.
    My parents and sisters returned to England for a visit, after I had left home to work, on the same ship in 1960 shortly before she was decommissioned.
