It started when Richard Lingham offered his story, which was first published in Sea Breezes magazine in January 2013, to the society. This informative piece has been paired with Brian Goodhew’s accounts of his times with MQ a few years earlier and give similar insights into the working of the ship from both passenger and crew perspectives. Brian’s accounts have appeared before in Full Ahead but not in this consolidated form. Finally, we have a fantastic collection of photographs which we have not published previously. These were taken throughout the ship’s post–war service by the late David Ingham and you might have seen some of them on Facebook earlier in the year.
