VANDYCK: 1921 - 2 Cunard mystery menus from Sept '39

Product Description

Cunard Line:  Here are two mystery menus from early September 1939 from the T.S.S. VANDYCK.  What on earth are Cunard menus doing onboard a Lamport & Holt vessel at the start of WW2? 

Both a breakfast menu from 2 September 1939 and a dinner menu dated 6 September are printed on Cunard stock.  And these are no austerity meals.  I count eighty different choices for breakfast while for dinner chef whipped up delicacies such as Creme Argenteuil, Poached Fillet of Salmon, and Prime Ribs of Beef.  Here’s my theory.  In late August 1939 Cunard was laying up much of its fleet in anticipation of war.  But they still needed to offer some berths across the Atlantic so they were assigned or leased Lamport & Holt’s VANDYCK.  In October ’39 the vessel was taken over as a troop transport and in June ’40 was sunk off Norway. 

Excellent condition.
