A unique piece of memorabilia from one of the most notable ships in British maritime history, RMS Mauretania, has emerged after 80 years. <br />
<br />
The 2ft x 2ft letter 'M' from the name, 'Mauretania', was attached to the starboard side of the 30,000 ton vessel and is now being sold for £10,000. <br />
<br />
The 110-year-old piece of solid brass adorned the ship's hull from its launch in 1906 until its retirement in 1934.
