The copyright date is 1986 and no additional dates or printings are noted. Synopsis - From the publisher: "Naval historians David and Stephen Howarth tell a vivid story of the birth and development of one of Britain's greatest companies. For more than 150 years, P&O has been one of the world's greatest shipping lines. Beginning with the mail contract to Gibraltar, P & O quickly became the natural way for generations of English men and women to travel to India and the Far East, and soon became the British way to travel the world. In two world wars and in the Falkland conflict, P & O ships and their crews endured with courage, contributing to eventual victory. Today, P & O is a modern internationally based company with wide-ranging interests, and iIts quartered flag is as familiar inland as it ever was on the sea lanes." Profusely illustrated throughout with color and black and white photos, maps, documents, art, posters and more.
