Catch me if you can!15 viewsOctober 5th 2008. The last day I saw QE2 as she approaches Greenock for her final call there. (I know it is similar to my previous photo, but it was a great day and Balmoral isn't a bad wee boat either)!Pete Hamill

Last ever view...so far - Greenock Sunday 5th October 200816 viewsIt's been really hard choosing only 3 memorable photos so I have included my first and last sightings of QE2. This was taken during her last trip to the Clyde during her final season. Still to make it to Dubai to see her there. It would be the only reason I would ever consider going to Dubai. Grill Britannia

QE2 docks in Greenock for the last ever time, 6th of October 2008161 viewsThis picture evokes such memories for me, as seeing that red funnel under those cranes was always so exciting to me as I travelled downriver to see her (starting in 1990).

On this occasion, I was with special family and friends, and had a really lovely day.

QE2 Arriving in the Clyde for the final time, October 6th 200877 viewsTaken from on board MV Balmoral, this was our first glimpse of QE2 as she came towards us. There then followed one of the most wonderful times of my life, alongside QE2 and HMS Manchester as we headed into Greenock as part of the Flotilla.

Never, ever to be forgotten.
