Product Description

Oliver Thomas Harvey was an engineer born in 1901.  He began with Cunard in 1931 on the RMS Berengaria.  He stayed with Berengaria for several years, and must have performed well since he was transferred to the new brand-new RMS Queen Mary.  He joined the ship in April of 1936 and was on board for her coastal cruise and maiden voyage.  Despite his over six years with Cunard, it seems Harvey swallowed the anchor in 1937.  Discharge books are usually cherished family mementos and are not often seen, especially for important events such as the introduction of the Queen Mary.  In very good condition and comes with a photo of our young officer taken on board the Berengaria.
