In the fall of 1969 I took a tour of the Q. Elizabeth 1, cruise ship docked in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Later doing research for my mother, I realized this ship entered my life over a period of WW2 to the time she sank on fire off the port of China and I saw her in 007 movie and didn't realize it was the same ship I toured and the one that took troops to Australia, and someone said my father's troop ship would also have been at that location when he was taken to Australia to fight WW2. I have a picture of me standing inside the ship with a replica of the ship enclosed in glass. My question is: What happened to the replica when the ship was sold or when the ship sank in China??
