    I have a poetry book published by Luath Press titled BUNNETS N BOWLERS about my serving my time as a plater on the QE2 whilst I served my apprenticeship in Browns. I now lecture in further education and do talks on John Brown at the time of the building of the QE2. Might any of the organisers be interested in 1) the Book 2) accommodating talks/ workshops? If so, contact me at

    Although the third FAQ above states ” If you are not registered with Paypal you can still pay as a Guest using your Debit or Credit Card.”
    No alternative appears to using Paypal – have I missed something?

      Hi Robert,

      If you watch for the option “Check out as a Guest” as you go through the payment process, this will let you put your payment through without using a Paypal account at all. I hope that helps. Let us know if you’re still having a problem.

    I would dearly love to attend the conference but, I have arranged for a knee replacement six weeks before and it is recommended I not make the trip from Virginia so soon. I, with my brother and sister-in-law, were on the maiden voyage to NY. We were just beginning the process of building a cruise ship at RDM and wanted to see what the latest was. We were totally blown away and I, as architect in charge of accommodation, recommended that we retain James Gardner and Jon Bannenberg which we did. The ship was purchased by Cunard and sailed as the Cunard Adventurer. (James, Jon and I were sacked.) Cunard by then was in a downward spiral and was bought by a City firm. The ship was slowly degraded from her magnificent original condition which process I witnessed in eight subsequent crossings and two cruises. Needless-to-say, I knew many of her original staff and the late Lord Mancroft and his wife were old family friends which rather added to the experience. I am an ocean liner buff and am well acquainted with the history and the ships. I crossed thirty-six times, fifteen on Cunard. Getting there (and home) was half the fun. Now, it’s close your eyes and think of England.
