Hi Peter -

You are making wonderful progress in fitting together our QE2 (Jigsaw) during her very first refit !  I hear then that she is already out of dry dock and has been refloated !  Very good !  Keep up the good work !

Rest assured, I have taken photos at each of the stages detailed above and will post them up later this week once the puzzle is fully completed.  :)

Well... I've finished it!  :D

There are 12 photos, 6 pairs - I had to do two of each stage using slightly different angles because this is quite a reflective jigsaw and it was not possible to show every detail clearly in a single picture.

I hope these post in the correct order, although it will be obvious what order they should be in, but I marked them 001, 002 etc anyway.

Thank you June.

Now....  We need to generate a list of destinations for this jigsaw don't we?

I imagine that for safety we will be using the same principle as for the others of minimising the number of international postage transits and, if possible, arranging manual handovers if people are close enough?

Hi Peter -

Thank you very much for your message, and yes, we do need to generate a list of destinations for 'Evening at Sea' QE2 Jigsaw. 

I would agree that manual handovers are good wherever possible and to make the rounds in UK before embarking on another Transatlantic crossing. 

So who will add their names to the list ?  I do know that Pete Cain wants to be added to the list.

Myself and perhaps Rod in the US so far.

Let the list begin !

When we get a few names we'll see if any of them are close enough to me ( within a couple of hours by rail from London, say ) to do a manual handover.

Hi Peter -

Let's ask again if someone in the UK would like to have a go at QE2 Evening at Sea refit before she starts another transatlantic crossing.  Pete will be interested in a few weeks, I believe. 

Where shall QE2 head for her next refit ?

June  :D

I'm very much hoping to tackle this really difficult jigsaw as well.

However... to be realistic... it would have to be over the Christmas break or at some other time when I get a decent period of time at home.

Good news though! I am about to get stuck into the "Liverpool Calling" jigsaw again and hope to post pictures of progress over the next few days.

I cannot take on the jigsaw at the moment but would be willing to have a try in the New Year. 
I was proud to be involved with planning QE2's 50 year conference in September 2017 in Clydebank

Hi Isabelle - Great news that QE2 Jigsaw Liverpool Calling will soon continue her refit.

Hi Rob - I think that is a marvelous idea to ask Ian and Sue McNaught to do the puzzle.  Will you ask them perhaps ?

Hi Lynda - I am sure after the New Year would be fine.

Revised list -

Peter M.
Ian and Sue M. ?
Pete C.
Isabelle P.
Alan S.
Jim B. ?
John ?
Catherine ?
Lynda B.
June
Rod ?

I like the idea of a former QE2 Captain assembling this jigsaw; will he take on the challenge, I wonder?

Could there be any potential publicity angle in this? Might make a nice photo in the press.
