Thank-you to Stephen for letting the forum members know that Gordon McKay had passed away. I am sure many ex QE2 crew will have known Gordon and will want to post their memories of this longest serving member of QE2 staff.

Thinking of his family and friends at this sad time.     
I am proud to be involved with planning QE2's 50 year conference in September 2017 in Clydebank

Unless lm mistaken, he was Butler for uptop and featured in a large photo in one of QE2s brochures..
From the moment you first glimpsed the Queen,
 you just knew you were in for a very special time ahead.!

That Gordon? I only met him on one cruise many years ago when my mother was in a cabin up there but he was a very kind, helpful and likeable person.
