Certification:

One of a fine collection of original circa 1920-30s Cunard RMS Berengaria signed cards obtained by a Miss Brain who was a stewardess on board this famous cruise-liner. RMS Berengaria was originally named the SS Impersonator (built for the Hamburg America Line) and first launched in 1912. At the time of her completion (in June 1913) she was the largest passenger ship in the world, surpassing the RMS Olympic and her sister ship RMS Titanic by 24ft. During World War 1, she remained in port in Hamburg ; after the war she was briefly commissioned by the US Navy as a troop transport ship (USS Imperator). Following her US Navy Service, her name was changed to "RMS Berengaria" and she was handed over to Britain's Cunard Line as part of war reparations. She became their flagship cruise-liner between 1919-1934. She was retired in 1938 and later sold to Sir John Jarvis to be broken up and scrapped on the Tyne between 1939-1946.
