Congratulations to Myles!

It is only now that I realise on looking at all the pics again that ALL the runners-up have the same "I Heart QE2" design on them -- and I believe it was designed by Myles!!

Quadruple congratulations to you then, Myles -- excellent work :) .

Thanks Isabella . If only l could claim that credit for designing the logo, but l cant ,However  I frst saw it onboard away back in 1991 and as they say bought the t shirt and sweatshirt .

Then fast forward a few years and l thought about getting badges printed, sent of a scan from my sweatshirt and they then tweaked it slightly and came up with this present logo, which then went onto form the basis for a few things l had printed and made up for my last years cruising on QE2. Some of the things proved a hit onboard. the little teddies l had  a few extra made up as it made them cheaper.They ended up being given out on the farewell cruise on some of the cabin cavalcades to a few people, on the basis, "never to be sold or given away for they are filled with love inside"  ::) one poor lady, and l still to this day have no idea who she is or where she is from, l gave her one and spluttered out the little phrase, well l have no idea what happened but she burst out crying and that in turn with what little reselove l had left set me off, Looking back l can laugh at it, but lm my tiny MI cabin what a sight we must have looked.

 But then emotions were a bit fragile on those last trips and the funniest things would set you off, the yacht club one night had  a most peculiar effect on me, but thats another story.

The badges then went onto be made for this forum and ended up all over the world, the badge company then went bust, shortly after making Robs golden ones.

 But then Iv always said that dear old QE2 has been very very good to me over the years and its only right that somehow in some little way that l can return the kindness.
   
From the moment you first glimpsed the Queen,
 you just knew you were in for a very special time ahead.!
