British Pathe QE2 Return

2 January 1969 - During a shakedown cruise QE2 technical problems with the turbines results in the ship with tugs returning to Southampton.  This British Pathe Video shows scenes of crew and passengers on deck.  Images of unfinished area of the ship, the Queens Room, the engines, the bridge and engineers going onboard to start the investigation into the problem. 
I was proud to be involved with planning QE2's 50 year conference in September 2017 in Clydebank
