I thought I'd just introduce myself... John Tomlinson was the engineer "volunteered" to look after cadets and I have brilliant memories of my time down below... The time when there was a fire in the engine room and the chief engineer appeared as a vision in full mess kit during dinner when I was on watch...the times when Richard Kenworthy routinely came down on watch and spread out his own table cloth on the control room desk to set out his tea and sandwiches...lovely Clive whose greeting was always "right china", the time in the boiler room when I and the duty engineer would take it in turn to do impersonations of other officers disco dancing technique...yes great days

I was proud to be involved with planning QE2's 50 year conference in September 2017 in Clydebank

Hi Mark,

Welcome to the forum, it's good to have another crewman here amongst us. I am sure you will find plenty to interest and entertain you.

It would be great to hear more of your stories from your time aboard, and photos are always welcome.
