I found a few items I have from the 60's and 70's - photos below.  I have a few other items such as programs and brochures that I'll photograph and upload soon.

Interesting !  No safety clasp on the pin.

I believe often nicknamed The Hoover

Hi everyone,
A few more QE2 early logo pieces including paper weight, tie bar and pin, cake tin, biscuit tin, luggage label, woman’s scarf and even razor blades. Iam not to keen to try the razor blades after all these years.

Just got in touch with a good friend of mine from the ship. He retired just before the Bremerhaven refit (re engining one) he just got his first tattoo at 70 years of age. What tattoo did he get? That QE2 one as shown on the cuff links etc above!
He should have gone to a better tattoo artist BTW!

Brilliant collection Timothy. I especially like the scarf with the logos.
I was proud to be involved with planning QE2's 50 year conference in September 2017 in Clydebank
