FLOATING GOWN [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus — 17 May 1950

FLOATING GOWN "My ship is a self-contained town of more. than three thou sand inhabitants with its restau rants, shops, churches, library, surgeries, printing press, swim ming baths and -even a landscape gardener. The Master and he alone, is responsible. He must maa e decisions, often quick de cisions, rightly or wrongly, and stand by the consequences. And the job does not allow for many mistakes, even with the modern aids of radar, radio telephone, radiograms and standing orders from the. Ministry of Transport and the owners. Sometimes a decision has to be made in a split second, sometimes there 'is an op portunity to take a second opinion from one of his trusted staff. Whatever the circum stances, whatever grace he may have before he speaks-he still speaks for himself." (Commodore C. M. Ford, Cap tain of R.M.S. "Queen Elizabeth,"' talking in the B.B.C. programme, "I Speak for Myself.")
