This month's theme is "Famous faces on the most famous ship afloat", chosen by Cunarder Man, the winner of the November 2019 competition.

Looking forward to your photos, and leaving it up to you to decide who the famous personalities are and whereabouts they might have been famous  ;) .

Enjoy the search -- I guess this leaves some scope for your imagination :) .



The prize this month is a QE2 photo frame in walnut, bought on board QE2 in 2008 and still in its original wrapping, donated by me, Isabelle Prondzynski.



Alternatively, June Ingram is offering a jigsaw of the prizewinning picture. The choice is yours -- which will it be?

This has turned out to be a difficult topic, with no entries so far.

I have decided to take the plunge and have also decided that the most famous faces on board were of course the crew! Three photos uploaded now.

Perhaps a better photo of the walnut frame might be a help :) .

I did see a few famous faces on board on my handful of trips - Richard Dreyfuss at the Purser's office springs to mind - but I didn't take any photos of them.

I am sure that everyone in this Forum would agree that, when you are on board, you are one of the most famous faces around :) . Make good use of this well established fact for the photo competition!

I think this coronavirus is taking up a lot of our time and thoughts.  It might be a good time to step back, take a breath or two, and look through your photos and find three to submit to this competition !   :)
QE2 - the ship for all of time, a ship of timeless beauty !

It is up to each of us to decide who is famous in our own eyes. I might think a crew member is famous, you might think it is your table neighbour, another might give that honour to their partner, and if you see a crowd of people on QE2, you can be quite sure that there are any number of famous people in that crowd. If we don't know them all, that is not our problem -- someone knows them and thinks the world of them!

So go ahead, let us have some photos with people on, and the Moderators will not be asking you for their names or why you think these people are famous!

So after a gentle nudge from Isabelle on tonight's Zoom call, helping me to think less literally, I've entered my 3 photos :)

So have a think - think laterally, not literally!

The most famous person who I seved both as a waiter and then Headwaiter was Ruby Keeler (Al Jolsen's wife)

The worst Celebrity was the wrestler Big Daddy.

Tight competition for first between Terry Waites & David Bowie, with John Cleese a close second.

Worst - definitely the son of one of the Gibb brothers, horrible creature, can't remeber his, but can't also be bothered to look in my records to find it either, not worth the effort.
