Churchill loved travelling by sea and the Queen Mary was one of his favourites

Watch rare footage of Winston Churchill in this short film as he becomes PM to lead Britain and her allies through WWII. Churchill travelled across the Atlantic aboard the Queen Mary on three occasions during the war, outrunning the German U2 boats, to keep the Grand Alliance intact. For more detail on the story, see this article from Finest Hour magazine Churchill Afloat – Liners and the Man.
