Studying for a degree whilst looking after a toddler might be challenging enough, but full-time mum and part-time University of Gloucestershire student, Janette McCutcheon has also just published her fourth book.

Memorabilia

Cruise ship fanatic Janette has one of the largest collections of memorabilia in the UK, relating to the 'Queen' ships Mary, Elizabeth, the QE2 and the QM2.

Her latest book, Cunard: A Photographic History uses many previous unseen images from her exhaustive collections of photographs and picture postcards.

Full of treasures

Janette and her husband Campbell on the Queen Mary 2 with Captain Warwick

Janette and her husband Campbell's house in Gloucester is crammed full of treasures collected over the years from specialist collectors' fairs, antique shops and auction websites.

Some of her most cherished possessions include a panel from the White Star Liner, Olympic (Titanic's sister ship), a wrapped souvenir cigar from the Queen Mary's maiden voyage and a rare photograph of the Titanic setting off on her first and final journey.

Travel journalist

Janette is taking modules in International Tourism and Journalism, to help fulfil her ambition of becoming a travel journalist, specialising - naturally, in cruise ships. Janette said:

"Attending the University of Gloucestershire is a wonderful experience. As a mature student, I didn't think I would fit in, but the staff have been great, my lectures have been so informative and my fellow students are fantastic. I am having the time of my life!"
