SS Aquitania at the Maritime Museum

These are a few pictures from the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.

My Mom was a war bride and came to Canada, like thousands of others, on the Aquitania.

Her wheel and a tea set. Maybe my Mom drank from that teacup!

A model

My mom's immigration card, showing she arrived on the Aquitania on 1946-09-04. Oddly her passport application is almost a year earlier.

Display about her use in WWII

and how she was painted for camoflage.
