GETTING READY FOR A NEW ROLE
Queen Mary was sold to Bass-Charrington (Toby Restaurants Division) in 1987 as a long-awaited replacement for PS Caledonia which was lost to fire in 1980 and for the other Clyde turbine steamer King George V, the original choice to replace her, until she succumbed to fire during her refit at Cardiff.
