A rare cruise staff pin from the Cunard Anchor Line. Dates to before 1935, which is when Cunard allowed the Anchor Line to go into liquidation. This was worn by members of the ship’s cruise staff during holiday cruises. Super rare! Measures just over .75″ in diameter and in fantastic condition.
This pin comes from the estate of Ron Johnson, Operations Manager of Cunard in the late 1960’s. He started with Cunard in 1926 and retired in 1971. I recently purchased all of the ocean-liner items from his estate, and they will be put up on Luxury Liner Row over the next few months. There is no question that he obtained this pin on a cruise around 1930, likely from the famous ss Transylvania as there are a lot of pictures of her in his collection.
