Link to an old item from the Maiden Voyage of the QE2--bit the worse for wear--but who isn't after all this time?

This is something that has been doing the rounds on ebay for years, l wonder if its the same tin, its sold for various prices over the years, but this is the lowest yet...im almost tempted to put in a bid...

  For the Whisky drinkers amongst us--or simply the "Collector"--maybe one for Myles to add to his collection?

Given the price its  a good buy, But the ribbon keeping the stopper should actually be a green tartan... shame they dont have the box and the extra bits.... Thanks Bobso for thinking of me, l will pass on this one,as if l need any more of the black ones ;).

Havent we all got one of these ? the night l obtained mine,  l quietly asked the waiter if such things could be bought, l could see his little eyes working overtime and the reply was that they were not for sale, as such....so l made sure the next round l left a dollar bill and low and behold it was secretly passed presented as l left the bar...

Oh! Myles......
That really was a Low and Behold Event.
Some might say 'Shocking', even.
You got one for 50p?
What on earth Do You Do with it?



QE2 had been waiting alongside in Dubai for nearly 12 years.  Please restore her Lifeboats and Tenders to where they truly belong - she looks naked without them - please spare her this ignominy.

I should have said that the dollar bill wasnt a dollar bill but a note of higher value.
What do l do with it.....Nothing, it just sits there..what else can you do with it ?

Hi Myles, I just wondered how much you did pay for you Q E 2 leather folder. I took the opertunity of buying mine for $5, from Cunard on the day of our final Q E 2 cruise on November 11th 2008. They said that if you took it as a "Upaid Souvenir" you would have a charge of $15 added to your credit card account!..So it worked out about £3-50 at the time. Not bad for a good keep sake. Im still very miffed that Cunard did not give us any present what so ever as a little momento .

Do you mean the incabin information folder ? the folder pictured is the one that the waiter would present your bar chit to sign.
As for the incabin folder my stewardess from l think 2001,  l always happened to see onboard every voyage, she gave me an incabin folder when l saw her on the 11th November for the last time.l gave her one of my badges.


At the risk of going off topic, she had no idea what her future was going to be after QE2 docked in Dubai. Which given her level of customer service. l felt was a disgrace..

Take a look at the table here.
It's from the Midships Bar, an original designed by William Plunkett.
It is Item no. in ebay uk 260999812278, and for sale by The Pursers Locker.

Is there a way that the image can be posted on the forum more permanently under a more appropriate topic
without it being contrary to copyright laws?

NOT on Ebay, but in a saleroom in Montrose.

A rather good painting of The Ship in her earliest days. From what I can find online John Nicholson is [was]
a Leeds based commercial marine artist, his paintings being used mostly for postcard production. The sale is
next saturday (21 July) and I'm sure they'd take commission bids over the phone or even live phone bids if you asked nicely. No indication of the size, but at an estimate of £20-£30 it must be worth a punt to one of you.
Full Away on Passage.

Oh! What a lovely painting!
Interesting that there are no further details - size of canvas, date etc
It could be quite big.


Please Mods - would it be OK for this picture also to be posted on the Forum in the topic Paintings of QE2?

Just noticed on the Ebay (Cunard) category,  someone is auctioning of a piece of carpet, which is mounted in rather a large frame, the carpet apparently is from the main lobby and is mostly of the "Cunard Golden Lion" crest which was removed on the her last refit
=Happy Bidding

 The carpet seller keeps changing his mind and l dont think has any idea of what hes selling, first of all it cant be rolled up as its fixed to the wooden backing, then it can, then he wont post it saying that its collect only then he s offering £25 courier shipping then he cancels it as he wants to appeal to the overseas market, but he wont ship overseas. and trying to get that last photo showing it all in its place was like getting blood from a stone..
Then to top it all... he removes the listing AGAIN !!! bids had reached  over £300...
