Here are three postcards sent by the Raymond & Whitcomb Co. reporting on their Spring 1927 Mediterranean Cruise that left New York on March 29 on the Cunard Liner Carinthia. The information is printed on government postal cards that were sent from the offices of the Raymond & Whitcomb Co. at the request of one of the cruise members. The cards were postmarked in Boston on April 7, 13, and 26. The first one has a cancellation promoting the Citizen's Military Training Camps, and the others have a South Postal Station cancel.
The ship Carinthia was launched in April 1925. She crossed the Atlantic on the Liverpool-Boston-New York route and was also used for cruising. The Carinthia was converted into an armed merchant cruiser in 1939. She was torpedoed by a German submarine off the Irish Coast on June 6, 1940 and sank 36 hours later.
The last image (source: eBay) is a menu from the 1929 Raymond & Whitcomb Mediterranean Cruise.
