I have a very special memory of the Chart Room.

In July 2008, when I had not yet met Rob but had corresponded quite a lot with him, I put a little gift for him into this chest of drawers, which would have been designed to hold the various sea charts :

(Removed image from quote, myself. :) )
This is one of Ed Derbyshire's photos from his recent visit to QE2 Hotel -- apologies for that, but I am not aware of any other photos of this particular chest of drawers.

Rob was on board only a couple of weeks later, and we believed that no one would ever look into the drawers, so my little package would be quite safe in the meantime. When Rob searched the drawers, however, there was nothing there for him... and the Purser's office was not aware of anything either... We had our suspicions, and I would be curious to know what happened... but there we are! It was always a slightly risky business.

A very special chest... with some very special memories! Good to see it again :) .


Hopefully you didn't put it in the very top drawer! :)

I actually found a mention in my old emails!

...in the Chartroom cabinet (second or third drawer from bottom, the one that contains the Japanese charts).

Japanese charts? Could it have been Hong Kong (see Michael's list of charts above)... I am inclined to doubt it, as I read Japanese (slowly) and know the Japanese geography quite well...

Mysteries abound!

Isabelle, That 3 nighter where QE2 docked bow to bow with QV at Zeebrugge was our last trip aboard - and I didn't take anything out of the drawers in the Chart Room  ;)
