That'd be "Big Andy" the sports store owner and darts fanatic from Philly. If you go to the virtual chart room archive and look at
"Forum logo - help wanted"  post 19 shows the patch he had made up for the first visit of QE2 to his city. I'm pretty sure he set
the visit up himself.

Interestingly, it was on the run back to Blighty from Philly that it was announced that the ship was to be "taken up from trade" and sent south as a troopship.

The design for the patches came fom the 1980 world cruise logo used by Cunard.

In the auction for the QE2 Maiden Voyage bag, the same man who tried to sell this souvenier of the QE2 at £99--99p--has re-listed it at

£49--99p. This still seems quite a lot for a bag. Do other members think the same?--or is this REALLY a bargain?

Not in my day...napking rings were never used. Like the QE2 ashtrays they disappeared at a fantastic rate.

I've got a QE2 ashtray in a box somewhere.  It is from our stateroom and we did not smoke.  We aren't the souvenir theiving type but I had found a diamond between the wood dance floor and the carpet in the Double Room and we had to check to see if it was real - enter the glass ash tray.  We scratched it with diamond and it left a deep gouge so we kept it as a memory piece.

As for the diamond, doing the responsible thing at age 11 we turned it in to the purser.  Unfortunately I don't know if it ever found its way back to its owner.

But ash trays were part of the decor all over the ship back in the day.

Well there are a number of ways to look at, Hes only charging £4 postage, But if it sells at the price of £49.99 he really needs to send it insured which will cost between £7 -£9 for the uk in case. Sadly there are some buyers out there who might claim the item hasnt been received and unless you have a "trackable" method of posting then in the end ebay will side against the buyer and do what's known as a charge back and claim the money back from the seller who in the end will lose out by this. Sadly this level of abuse is increasing and more people are sending items recorded dely.

He hasnt given any idea of the size of the bag, remember l did say previously its not as big as you imagine it to be.
Personally l think hes aware of the number of people watching this item (im one of them and have no intention of bidding) and will probably be expecting it to sell right away for  a hefty price.

 However with a bit of wisdom all he has to do is list it with a very low starting price, say £9.99 pop in a reserve of £50 which is the minimum allowed and see what happens. When the auction ends and should the reserve not be met, he then has the option to make a second chance offer to the higher bidder.

I would be glad to pay about £20 or so for the bag, but not much more.Its not a bag you would use, it might be nice on display, and if you took it onboard the new Cunard ships there no knowing what reaction you might get.....
Is it worth the money.as with all ebay stuff have a price in mind and dont get involved in a bidding war

To reply to Cunardqueen----i absolutly agree with everything you say. I am also watching the auction and again have no intention of bidding. Like yourself, i would put a price of between £20--00p and £25--00p for it but i will be intersted to see what he does sell it for---(if he manages this time)

Of course ideally we should all unwatch the item and see what happens LOL

  This item seems VERY expensive for what it is---

The tie appears to be the same design as the QE2 Farewell season tie. Cant remember how much it cost, But it seemed expensive, l only wore it twice onboard the farewell trips, and doubt l will wear it again....

Interestingly l was on this Maiden Voyage of the NEW QE2 all those years ago in 1987 and never received this certificate for reasons unknown. It was only a few years ago when one cropped up on ebay that l realised l didnt have one...

And this Maiden Voyage cigarette tin has been doing the rounds for years on ebay, lm sure its not the same one, BUT its sold in the past for various prices between £8- £22 and once didnt sell and was relisted.
This present seller, is perhaps on the heavy side of pricing...

Im sure they do, But this seller started at £500 and is working his way down, personally l wonder if he knows what hes selling given the lack of any other photos, and his seller name perhaps speaks volumes... :(

Difficult to stop my finger hovering over the bid button. Would be a bit expensive having to buy another house just to put it in though! (no room on Lone Gerd)
