First sailed on QE2 in August 2003 aged 6 years old. Last sailed on QE2 in July 2008. Last saw the seagoing QE2 in person from the decks of QM2, on QE2's last Transatlantic crossing (Eastbound tandem) in October 2008. Visited QE2 in her new life, in Dubai, in January 2020 and August 2022.

Awesome John, THANK YOU!

Now would be a good time for my work to put me on Furlough !!

John had this with him last week on our Zoom video call, and I asked him if he could scan it in.  Although the genuine one is all pre-cut, it seems to me that you could print these scans onto card, and with a craft knife make a perfect cut-out.    Is anyone brave enough to try it?

Rob, I’ll scan it onto A3 paper and see what I can do.
