George's mention of the QEII Bar in Malta (Feb 20th, 2020) got my memory neurons going. On 11.07.2008 I stood outside the door of the bar (see attached photo) and was very tempted to enter and have a drink to cool down. Then I remembered I had my youngest son with me, and I didn't want to lead him astray as he had to return for duty in a couple of hours (QE2 3/O).

We wandered on further, spent a few more hours in town, and eventually returned to the ship via the road down from the RAF Memorial. I turned to look at QE2, then took the attached photo of her - nearly the same as the one George took, but there was a lot less traffic on the wharf. My angle is slightly different, so I couldn't have stood on the same spot!
Great Coincidence - I wonder how many others snapped the same photo.
A greatly enlarged version now hangs on my office wall. The photo date says 12.07.2008 because the camera was still set on Kiwi time - a day ahead.

Yes, a great photo !  I imagine many photos were taken as she looks so good.  QE2 is especially photogenic when there is a palm tree in the photo !   :)

The February competition on "Works of Art on board QE2" led to the extraordinary result of three winners : Cunarder Man's "Mauretania" and "Mauretania restaurant art" and Frazscot's "Stair from One Deck". Well deserved congratulations to both!

Mauretania


Mauretania Restaurant Art


Stair from One Deck


The runner-up is James A Hypher's "Lido midnight ice sculpture", entered by Thomas Hypher.

Lido Midnight Buffet Ice Sculpture


All of these are beautiful, and the fact that only one vote separated them, just shows how many works of art we appreciated on board QE2. Wonderful memories!

Congratulations to Cunarder Man and Frazscot!

My Dad is chuffed to be runner up :)
First travelled on QE2 in August 2003 aged 6 years old. Last stepped foot and travelled on QE2 in July 2008. Last saw QE2 in person from the decks of QM2, on QE2's last Transatlantic crossing (Eastbound tandem) in October 2008 - we had the better view!

Chuffed is a great word and I'm really chuffed to have won this months competition especially when I was up against such great pictures.       I thought my other selection 'Finished with engines"might be in with a chance as it was a small part of a great piece of art not normally noticed but the stair from my favourite deck won the day.
Now I will have to pick a subject for another contest and that could be difficult to find something that has not yet been done...................

Congratulation to all competition winners.  Wonderful photos that I really enjoyed viewing and they made choosing 3 favourites very difficult.

Great winner, good fun! The runner up brings back my memories of that final tandem transatlantic and how special it was to watch QE2 in her element, doing what she did best - and all from the deck of another ocean liner in parallel.

Actually, I would love to know more about Jasper the Bear. Was this his favourite porthole? Did he often travel on QE2? He looks like a well travelled bear who knew how to enjoy a good view.

Or maybe he was sorry to have been left behind and would have enjoyed a port excursion...
