QE2 40th Anniversary Photos
« on: Feb 04, 2011, 11:39 AM »
Here is the collection of pictures from my voyage on the QE2 with my family around the UK.  I cannot believe this is nearly four years ago.  It was a fab trip.  I hope you enjoy my pictures.

I love the video of the photos it was so well put together and so emotional.  Well done.

Thanks for sharing these.  Especially enjoyed the video.  We met your parents on the equally emotional Farewell to the UK trip and like you say, it is hard to believe it was only a few years ago.

It's very clear in your video that so many people took such great pride in the QE2 just four short years ago.  It's hard to believe she was so easily retired and in another country.  I really enjoyed the video, you did a great job.

The interior photos brought back great memories.

Thanks for posting.

Whenever I hear a sea story I think of the first time I saw the QE2 and the great adventures that followed.

Thank everyone for you responses.  I think the QEII was definantly a peoples ship and has a place in every person's heart who was involved with her, either as a builder, worker or passenger.  Even though it seemed Cunard could get rid of her so easily I dont think the people could.

What a lovely sentiment.  Thanks for these lovely words Lauren.

Some good photos as you work your way through the site.  I like the menu covers.

I like the photos of the Red Arrows at Greenock.  Also quite funny to read his account of the 40th Anniversary Cruise.

Thank you so very much for posting the beutifull pictures and the lovely video of the QE2 My late uncle was one of the men who helped build her. Such a great pity that the doller notes waved in front of their noses made them sell her. Also a great pity she was not saved in Britain where she would have DEFINATLY been appreciated.
