Letters to the editor

Britain-born expatriate, Peter Hull, needs to bone up on the history of his native land.

Queen Mary doesn’t have to refer to “Bloody Mary” any more than the 20th Century liner and World War II troop ship was named after Mary Tudor.

Hull needs to recall that the ocean liner was named after the wife of King George V and another Queen Mary was the wife of King William III.

Tsk, tsk, Peter.
