The QE2 at John Browns486 viewsI'm not sure where this picture came from, it was in my grandfather's papers.

On the back it says that it shows Engineer's Mate George Lawler, one of "four burley cranemen" who have taken on overtime at John Browns at night scaring birds away from the QE2 in the fitting out basin below, earning themselves an extra 30 shillings a night!!!

Bell's169 viewsEmbarkation duties, baggage and flowers etc. to be delivered to cabins. We used to make fun of this especially in New York where for some reason the ship used to become alive with static electricity. We would run toward the boarding passengers, rubbing our feet on the carpet to build up the charge as we took there bags there would be a crack as a static discharge jump from us to them, making them jump. Kids yay1 well we were all around 16/17 then.David Risley44444
