Thanks Fraser, your story will be an interesting addition to the Front page "Features" section

To assist Rob I have copied the relevant post from your introduction "Fraser Ballantyne's Introduction to QE2" to combine the posts and tidy up.

Please forward any photos you would like us to add to Admin@theqe2story.com

Cheers Lynda

Hi Rob,
Apologies, I didn't notice this thread until after I'd posted my Hong Kong story yesterday. If it can be added in the manner/format you suggest that would be great too - let me know if that's okay and what input you would need from me. Happy to help, cheers for now, Ben

Hello Ben,
Yes, it will be brilliant to have your QE2 story! Have you found the other stories, at the link above (see Lynda's contribution)? You could get inspired by those.

What we need is the story of how the QE2 was part of your life, with a few relevant photographs. You could send all this to the admin@theqe2story.com email address, and Rob will format the story and pictures and upload it. You could also get in touch with us at the admin address in case of any questions, and we shall respond as best we can.

Looking forward to reading your story (and Jasper's!).

Hi Rob,

Yes I would indeed like to make a contribution. I will have to see if I have any photos of myself on QE2. Yes of course I have a number, but as they were taken by the official Photographers there maybe be copyright issues. I'm sure i can find some however that were taken with my cameras other than lovely dining table photos unless I have permission from all of the participants! 

However the main point of this brief note is to suggest that as some of us have made many voyages on our beloved ship that we ought to make a number of short articles available on different voyages to avoid confusion.

I will work on on it and dig out some of my own best pix both of the ship and of different places I went to.

Finally how many words would you like per article approx?

Let us know your thoughts on this one

Regards

photocruiser

Hello there,

You have whetted our appetite both with your name "Photocruiser" and your offer.

Yes please, let us see lots of photos, and if they were taken by the official ship's photographers and you bought them, there is no copyright issue, as you now own them.

As regards writing about your cruises, perhaps you could start by writing an introduction in one of the "Introduction" sections (crew or passenger / enthusiast as appropriate) and then following up with each of the cruises you would like to tell us about. It would be great to enjoy your memories!
