their company members and their business operations.

specialists of the industry, was found to be the prime factor in the
preservation of the technology and the continued excellence of the

down through the ages.

British Royal Navy for active duty.
Her war record is a proud one.

France. She carried reinforcements to Iceland, disembarked troops at
Casablanca and traveled a total of 11,000 miles of North African coast, as
