I haven't a clue who you are, Anthony, but look forward to finding out.  Welcome to the site.

Ohhh thats a shame... It actually turns out that my name is Katy Nother, 19.. My father, Tony Nother was an extraordinary man. He sadly passed away when i was 8, so i never managed to get any info from him about the time in which he vayaged on the QE2. I was hoping someone knew him  :)

Hello Katy and welcome onboard

Could you give us a time range of when your Father was onboard? I am sure that would make it easier.

Hi Katy, welcome!

please be patient, and I think someone wil remember your dad.  Some people only visit this site weekly, some monthly and some even less often or they haven't even found it yet! So check back every now and then to see. It would help to have a bit more info and a photo to jog people's memories.
