Bell Boy duties.553 viewsI loved my time on board. When i first joined I used to earn something like £6.00 a week wages, a poultry amount even in those days. However i soon cottoned on to the fact that you could supplement your wages big time by being attentive about your duties, being nice to people, charming and flattering them and doing all things with a smile. I soon got used to making about $85.00 average a week in tips. I had nothing better to do than enjoy my work.David Risley

The QE2 at John Browns481 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!!!
