On 20 September 1967 QE2 was launched in Clydebank, a date that lives in the memory of those who love the ship.  At that time it could never have been imaged the acclaim that the ship would achieve over her lifetime.  Crowds would gather to see the ship and for those of use who travelled onboard there are ever lasting memories.

Last chance to enter this month's prize competition!

Our forum photo competition gives the opportunity to share our photographic memories and relive some of happiness that QE2 gave to us.

 “QE2 attracts shoreside crowds” is our September photo competition theme.  When we found that some members were struggling to find photos, Isabelle cleverly expanded the criteria to include members of professional crowds such as bands, dancers or other entertainers, just as long as the photo included a part of the star of the show our beautiful QE2

With the competition closing date of midnight on 30 September drawing near why not take a look at your QE2 photos and choose your three favourites to upload to the gallery.  For more information have a look at the photo competition topic.
