QE2 Arriving in the Clyde for the final time, October 6th 200877 viewsTaken from on board MV Balmoral, this was our first glimpse of QE2 as she came towards us. There then followed one of the most wonderful times of my life, alongside QE2 and HMS Manchester as we headed into Greenock as part of the Flotilla.

Never, ever to be forgotten.

QE2 docks in Greenock for the last ever time, 6th of October 2008161 viewsThis picture evokes such memories for me, as seeing that red funnel under those cranes was always so exciting to me as I travelled downriver to see her (starting in 1990).

On this occasion, I was with special family and friends, and had a really lovely day.

The QE2 at John Browns527 viewsI'm not sure where this picture came from, it was in my grandfather's papers.

On the back it says that it shows Engineer's Mate George Lawler, one of "four burley cranemen" who have taken on overtime at John Browns at night scaring birds away from the QE2 in the fitting out basin below, earning themselves an extra 30 shillings a night!!!
