Hello!  Welcome!

Looking forward to hearing your QE2 Stories!

Is that a QE2-related tattoo?  If it is, you're not the only one!  https://www.theqe2story.com/forum/index.php/topic,1009.msg10895.html#msg10895

A larger version of this fine tatoo can be admired here :

Welcome Aboard Beat ! The tatoo looks very painful, Lovely but painful. Though lm not crew l was a passenger onboard during the years you served. Look forward to hearing more from you and your experiences onboard the greatest ship in the world .

What job, position did you hold down while on board ?
From the moment you first glimpsed the Queen,
 you just knew you were in for a very special time ahead.!

Hi Beat - Welcome !  June

Hi can you tell us more about the job, Were you in charge of the special requests? Which were popular and which were unpopular?

I rememeber on Alan Whickers Fast Boat to China they were showing special requests being made, and the one that stuck out was "Floating Island" and is showed a bunch of grapes being dipped in something and mentions the copius amounts of alcohol used ?

Dare we ask, given the buying power, was it much easier to buy in ready made items rather than make them from hand?
Im thinking of the petit fours etc? what might surprise us that was bought in that we might have expected to be hand made? ie bread rolls? or the afternoon tea delights? etc
enquiring minds and all that 

Cheers
