This is a link to Mr Gardner's Obituary, published in the Independent on 28th March 1995.
It was written by Sir Hugh Casson, a good friend of JG, and who was President of the Royal Academy of Art, annd closely linked with both MV Canberra HMY Britannia and QE2!

QE2 had been waiting alongside in Dubai for nearly 12 years.  Please restore her Lifeboats and Tenders to where they truly belong - she looks naked without them - please spare her this ignominy.
