Hello from Canterbury

13th October 2008, 17:56
Hello forum, I have just joined and am looking for information for a friend.
Her dad was a carpenter on the QE2 and she was looking for any sound recordingsof the engines running that she could find, as a special present for him, as he always said the best sleep he ever had was when he was lulled to sleep by the engine noise.
My dad is an avid ferry enthusiast and prodigious collector of ferry photos (mainly cross channel and sealink ferries) and has many photos in books attributed to him, so thats another good reason to join, to aid his research into that side of things. Anyway, I will hopefully find the correct part of the forum to post my question, if not please forgive me for posting in ignorance.

Welcome Grendel.

The "Hello from Canterbury" brought a smile to my face.

Most of our crew were "company" men with the numbers brought up to scratch from the Federation. One trip we were blessed by having a NUS Delegate sail with us from the pool.

In his own world he took everything so seriously but continually had his leg pulled by those that he thought he was ably representing.

On the menu was Roast Canterbury Lamb which the crew complained to their delegate, was very misleading. No further ado but the delegate was knocking on the Old Manīs Door to rectify whether it was Canterbury UK or Canterbury NZ - even the Old Man was in on the game.

Kind Regards, David Wilson.

Grendel, from Michigan, a warm welcome to Ships Nostalgia.
Good to have you onboard.
I think your father will enjoy our Galleries and find much to interest him there.
Perhaps a member will direct you to an engine sounds recording of the QE2.
It won't take you long to find your way around our site.
