Very good find.  QE2's construction has long fascinated me.

That's interesting, as her name Queen Elizabeth 2 is clearly showing. I thought the name was a closely guarded secret, or have I got that wrong?

Cheers

Jem, the funnel and wheelhouse were installed in the fitting out berth after she was named and launched on 20 Sep 1967.

Great footage-I like the guys wandering about underneath with no Hi-Vis or HSE stuff/inspectors in evidence. I'm not saying that safety consciousness is wrong-in fact I applaud it to save lives but this does show how Britain was built by Real Hard grafting workers

Bob, Thank you for that, of course if you watch her launch she has no wheelhouse or funnel :-[
