A good find, but some of the items seem overpriced...

Like 50$ for a couple of coffee cups :o

The xmas decorations are not official, they are just someone who has bought the basic decorations and decided to inset a picture of the ships in them..
But then a fool and his money and all that.....

Yes I was looking at them in Boots just an hour or so before I saw this posting here - very creative of them - however how many people want Baubles of ships?!  I know I don't... would be more suitable as a clever marketing freebie from Cunard .

The holdalls are really quite nice, My first crossing on QE2 l became friendly with a couple, Donald and May from the Columbia Rest. They were sailing over having 3 nights at the Waldorf and flying back on the Concorde. You can imagine my surprise when a box arrived one day and they had sent me a gift of the holdall.
 Its only ever been used once and that was for a QE2 ship visit, years ago.
 We encountered a force 10 gale mid atlantic and they both were feeling slightly unwell and were going back to the cabin for lay down. I mentioned that for all the money this trip was costing wasnt that a waste of time, so instead off we went and hunted down the ships daily tote,placed a bet and went shopping, the sea sickness they were suffering somehow vanished.
 The friendship is still there 25 years later.

Plans/drawings of QE2.  Produced in 1999 by Burness Corlett and Partners.  To record the record of Hull Cracking.

It will be interesting to see how much they go for.

The stern anchor hawse pipe is on the wrong side in the stern profile.  Unless its to show that there is one on the other side.

They're currently at £82, which seems ridiculously high to me.

Queen Elizabeth 2 QE2 Cunard "The authorized story"
by Potter and Frost

There's a copy of this currently advertised on ebay uk at the moment!
It's an excellent (rare) book about the early years of QE2's life.

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.

Amazon usually has one or two copies available as well if anyone is looking. It's a very good book that gives insight into QE2's conceptualization, construction and the Cunard steamship company. Highly recommended for any QE2 fan.

Lets not forget our very own QE2 book shop, it always seems to have a mention of that book...and a very good book it is to.

Burness Corlett were the ships Naval Architects for the last few years of the ships life. All of the General Arrangement plans from at least the last 20 years were drawn by them. Crack monitoring was done by a very pleasant Geordie chap who visited pretty much every Soton, and he monitored all the cracks to ensure they hadn't grown too much, and thye were recorded on plans like these.

Incidentally crack monitoring is now done on the QV by a Deck Officer, rather than an outside 'specialist', until it warrants the visit of a 'guru' - must be cut backs I suppose!

Best line I ever heard was a pax saying to The Staff Captain 'I want to take you and show you a crack by lifeboat 13' as if it was a huge issue. 'You've obviously missed the other 300 then!' was his reply...

When you consider that most of the Documentation Wallets struggle to sell on ebay for a few £s they are making good money from the passport holders
 And of course its all for charity..
