Today 9th January in the year 1972 the Queen Elizabeth "caught fire" and was burnt out in HK harbour, a very sad day for a magnificent ship.
Marcus, I would love to see a picture of this sign , is this possible? I am the curator of the RMS QE Historical Society and have a very large collection of the ship including a full set(24 sheets) of hand drawn Do***entary Drawings of EVERY PART OF THE SHIP! (lines, shell plating, sheer profiles, full working deck plans etc.)Marcus Cardew said:Ah Well!
There is a little bit of her still surviving. I have an 'aluminium & perspex' main deck 'you are here' sign, (from her last stop at pier 92).. maybe I should scan it in...
Delighted to hear that you are writing a book on this stunningly beautiful and supremely well engineered ship, put me down for an advance copy!!!!!!!rmsqe1 said:Thank you so much for your welcome R58484956 !!
If ever you feel like talking privately about your time and the work you did on the Lizzie - truly the worlds greatest ship- then I would love to hear from you as I am doing research for a future book on her. God bless, Ringo Varisco. Curator, RMS QUEEN ELIZABETH HISTORICAL SOCIETY
