Thank you so much for posting this video. "Le France" (as we called her) was a part of my younger years. She was awesome. I got to see her in Le Havre heaps of times.
I love the song in the video. It is old fashioned and it suits her so well. She was definitely stylish, long and lean like the QE2. I love them both dearly!
I happened to have an uncle who was a customs officer in Le Havre. We went on board when she was in the harbour. I had the chance to go on board many ships at the time. One liner that really struck me during my childhood was SS
"Liberté", also from Compagnie Générale Transatlantique and then another liner named "Louis Lumière". Both were pre-France ocean liners. I will never forget them.
I got to sail on "Le France" before she ever became the Norway.
So many memories...
