On Ebay this weekend I noticed someone was selling a certificate saying they had completed a transatlantic voyage on QE2 - was this something that they did in later years?  I wish I had received one!!

Is this the thing you mean? It was a souvenir for sale in the early 90s. (Apologies for the quality of the picture but it's framed and hanging on the wall - I don't want to take it out of the frame  :-[ )

No - it was a much simpler one - just an 8x10 certificate with a small drawing of QE2 - I love yours, though!!

These are great to see! I love the mention of rigours and fortitude in this context :)

Between us all, we must have quite a few certificates.

I have one for visiting Longyearbyen in Svalbard, so near the North Pole, but it is so big that I cannot scan it... I shall have a go at photographing it.

From the moment you first glimpsed the Queen,
 you just knew you were in for a very special time ahead.!

That was one of the most spectacular places QE2 took us to. Fabulous memories!
