Dinner Menu S.S. Dunluce Castle 25 May 1936

Rare vintage menu from the South African - UK steamship line from 25 May 1936 on board the S.S. Dunluce Castle. The Meal from this historical menu featured Mignon of Beef Benjamin - We presume that it is Filet Mignon and Benjamin is the name of the chef for this preparation. Sounds delicious.
