Product Description

A fine looking very collectable group of 4 painted ship’s miniature Life Rings that commemorate the cruises on P&O ships in the period 1958 to 1967.

The life rings are made of wood, which has been painted white (now cream) and red or blue, depending on the ship. The ships are R.M.S Arcadia (twice 1958 and other), SS Iberia (1959) and SS Himalaya (1967). The Life Rings are decorated with the Merchant Navy and P&O flags, as well as the cruise destinations. Condition is good, but SS Iberia has lost some of its white paint.

Souvenir life rings, date from the 1950s to 1980s and were sold on board P&O ships. The early ones were very made of canvas Kapok and then painted. In later years some wooden curtain rings were obtained by the crew, and these were also painted in the P&O colours with ships names, flags and even ports of call added. You could ask for nearly anything to be painted on them. The lifebelts were made almost exclusively by the Indian deck crews that worked on board P&O passenger ships.
