Transport - Queen Mary - Southampton
The lights of the Cunard liner Queen Mary are reflected in the dark water of Southampton Docks, taken as she was prepared for her last departure on her last two-way transatlantic crossing. After nearly 32 years service, the giant vessel is to go to Long Beach, California, at the end of next month to become a floating hotel and maritime museum.

Doggetts Coat and Badge Race
Young Thames watermen out of their apprenticeship in the past year rowed from London Bridge to Chelsea in the 236th race for Doggett's Coat and Badge. There were six starters. For the first time since the race was instituted in 1715, this year's contest included an entrant -- 22-year-old Fred Burwood -- who to preserve his amateur status had signed a declaration that he would take no part of the prize if he won. The race, rowed over a course of 4 3/4 miles, was inaugurated under the will of the late Mr Thomas Doggett, a famous comedian, in commemoration of George I's accession in 1714. In addition to the coveted Coat and Badge there is a prize voucher of 20 for the winner.
