This was certainly a night to remember as I stood on board the deck of a ship to take
these final photos of the Q.E.2 departing Southampton U.K for Dubai.
I stood surrounded by people of all ages and all walks of life who had come to see her off, on her final journey through the waters of the Solent along the coast of the Isle Of Wight.
I could not help but feel a deep sense of sadness as the crowds around me cheered and sobs of sadness were heard coming from the young and the old.
I do not think I shall witness such an event in my life time again.
