She was beautiful. I grew up close to Southampton docks. The Lizzie and her equally beautiful sister Mary, were part of the fabric of the city. My dad used to take me & my brother to watch them sail, and as an 8 year old I was inconsolable on seeing her sail for the final time. It's so sad that they didn't take better care of her. Such an undignified ending.
I think the general feeling in Southampton was and, among those old enough to remember her still is, that she should have stayed with us

I was quartermaster on the Queen Elizabeth in the summer 1965 what an experience to be helmsman on the largest Liner in the world and to me one of the saddest when the great Lady caught fire .What a terrible end for a great ship.
