概要:

"P & O is as old as seagoing steamships and its story weaves like thread thourgh the history of the British Empire. For 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 Englishmen and women to travel to India and the Far East. Many great names and colourful personalities have played their part in the story since Brodie McGhie Wilcox and Arthur Anderson won, in 1837, their first contract to carry mail. Within a few years P & O ships were familiar sights in ports throughout the Mediterranean and the Middle East. As early as 1844 Arthur Anderson invented deep-sea cruising, and by the 1880s Victorian doctors had no hesitation in prescribing health-giving sea voyages. Ahundred years later cruising on P & O;s famous white ships remains an important part of thecompany's activities. In Queen Victoria's age, travelling to Egypt or Aden was exciting enough but it was as the gateway to India and the Far East (especially Hong Kong) that P & O;sname became indelibly imprinted on the minds of Englishmen of every class and fortune, "--Jacket.
