The theme for the February Competition, "QE2 & Her Superstructure Repairs", was chosen by Hamburger.

Please vote for your three favourite photos. This is the fifth competition of the new calendar year, with winning and runner-up photos going towards the 2024 QE2 Story Calendar.

The prize this month is a Memento from QE2's 1987 Maiden Voyage donated by Lynda Bradford.

Voting is easy, but you need to be registered as a Forum member and log into the Forum to vote.  Whether or not you have submitted photos, please support those who have participated, by choosing your 3 favourite ones, noting the details, then tick the relevant boxes on the poll.  If you have entered photos, please do not vote for your own pictures.

To make it easier for you, we have posted the pictures below.

However, you might like to turn to the Gallery Album, "QE2 & Her Superstructure Repairs" where you can see them all at once, in thumbnail form. Plus you can view larger versions of the pictures by clicking on the photos to see them in medium size, and clicking once more for large size.

https://www.theqe2story.com/forum/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=290

You will not see the results of the vote until the poll has closed on 1 April 2023, after all time zones have had a chance to catch up with the voting deadline.

Enjoy the variety of the photos, admire the work done on QE2, and choose your three favourites.

Did you notice the patches on QE2 from her superstructure repairs? Or did you think she was perfect regardless of the patches?


Have a look at the photos entered for this month's competition and vote for your three favourites.

We now have 11 voters ! That is excellent ! If you have not yet cast your ballot, perhaps the weekend will be a good time to look at the great selection of photos and choose your three favourites.

Always so interesting to look at the ship and her collection of patches and scars.
