Crossing the Atlantic

   I have crossed the Atlantic twice.  Once by air...coming home for WWII and once on the way... in the Aquitania.  (<-LINK) Worth a quick look.

My father was transported to England on the Queen Mary.

He didn't get to fly back -- but he did return on an AIRCRAFT.....(carrier)

I don't recall how many high the bunks were stacked -- but it was HIGH!

I'm pretty sure it was the USS Lexington and pretty much everyone got seasick.
