Bay of Biscay Enroute Back to Southampton, July 200817 viewsMy Dad's (James A. Hypher's) photo from the port bridge wing on our last QE2 voyage.

This was my second bridge visit almost 3 years to the day of the first with the nursery, at a more sedate approximately 21 knots (slow by QE2 standards).

My Dad had written to Captain David Perkins asking if a bridge visit was possible given it was our last chance on a seagoing QE2. I still have the response letter from his secretary.

Built like a Battleship48 viewsMy photo from our bridge visit of Tuesday 29th July 2008, whilst sailing through the Bay of Biscay enroute back to Southampton on what was our final voyage onboard. I was standing on the raised platform belonging to the port bridge wing's manoeuvring station (otherwise nicknamed a barbecue I think?), the port side compass repeater being in the foreground along with the bridge wing's leading edge weather deflector setup. My Dad happened to take a photo that shows me taking this photo hence knowing the above!Thomas Hypher
