I don't seem to have any photos of the tops of the tenders!  I do have one of the top of a lifeboat, and it shows the new callsign clearly on it.

Attached photo shows the G and B of GBTT above the bridge.  Squint your eyes up a bit and you'll see!

Well Done!

Thinking on - if / when QE2 has found her next home,
there'll be no reason there and then to stop us getting cracking with a paint-brush or two.
Thanks to you we'll know where to reinstate what must have been the best known call-sign round the world.
It must still be somewhere inside the wheelhouse too, as well as on the screen that you showed us.
Can't wait - hope it happens before too long!
QE2 had been waiting alongside in Dubai for nearly 12 years.  Please restore her Lifeboats and Tenders to where they truly belong - she looks naked without them - please spare her this ignominy.

Only if she were ever to return to the British registry Rosie, in which case she could apply to reinstate GBTT - now there's a thought...

They (Lloyds Register, London) wouldn't turn her down, would they?
In fact she, may still be classified on their books...
Heading off to enquire....
