This Month's Theme

Stowaway2k, the winner of the February competition, has chosen the theme "From Anchors to Lamps -- the Fixtures and Fittings of QE2".

This should feature your best photos highlighting the fixtures and fittings of QE2. Interior or exterior, a practical fixture or fitting that has a job to do (working equipment), or is purely decorative. Examples could be the equipment on the foredeck, the columns in the Queens Room, lifeboat(s) and davit(s), the old stewardess / steward call buttons and lights, the gangplank(s), the cargo crane, the banquets in the Princess Bar and other places, etc.
We are sure that you will have lots of photos of these features. The album is open so now is the time to look for your pictures. 

This Month's Prize.

Marc-Antoine Bombail (Forum member qe2forever) has donated a prize, a QE2 poster issued in 2007 to celebrate QE2's 40th anniversary, which was available for purchase in the QE2 Bookshop only.

I thought this would be a difficult one to find photos of fixtures and fittings, but I enjoyed looking through my photos to find my three choices.  I hope you like them.   ;D

Looking forward to seeing what other members upload for this interesting photo theme.
I was proud to be involved with planning QE2's 50 year conference in September 2017 in Clydebank
