QE2 Ashtrays and other liner trinkets!
« on: Jan 14, 2021, 12:13 PM »
I’ve just had this arrive in the post! I believe this to be one of the original ashtrays that QE2 carried from her maiden voyage, whilst certainly not the most exciting of artefacts one could buy, I do enjoy getting smaller bits and bobs as they come up; they remind both I and my wife of our time onboard.

Unrelated to QE2, but still interesting is the fragment of Mauretania’s aft deck I also keep on the same cabinet, I’ve still failed to collect one of the barrels which were made alongside these letter openers.

I’m curious as to what smaller trinkets from QE2, and other Cunarders, do you all have in your own possessions? It’s always nice to have something to remember these grand old ships by.

Excluding QE2, which is/was the greatest Transatlantic Liner of all time?
