My most enduring memory of SS France:

The first time I ever saw the ship: Drawing up alongside the quay in Southampton as a 9 year old boy, with my dear Grandfather. Going on board to visit parts of the ship with him before he sailed off to New York aboard her.

Even then, as a child, I was in awe of her sheer size, the bright lights, the fantastic interior fitments. I made an impression on me that I shall never forget. SS France, you live in my memory and my heart. Thank you for this thread it's time for me to say goodbye and thanks to all fellow contributors.
