Fabulous "raw" footage here   

WOW :) Great to see Mr QE2 .Dare we ask how it felt to be face to face with The Queen  and what was said ! 
From the moment you first glimpsed the Queen,
 you just knew you were in for a very special time ahead.!

Just wondering who the guy on your right was, Michael, he has a familiar look about him. Indeed who were the rest of the lineup

Toward the end of this clip is a great view of the "QE2 Forever" book.  :)

Oh yes, now I remember Thomas Quinones telling me the book was given to HM The Queen and her royal party on this occasion.
