Rupert Ballantyne was the QE2's Public Rooms Officer which meant that he was in charge of all the public areas onboard the ship. He shares some fascinating detail about life onboard when the QE2 was requisitioned by the MOD and sent to the Falklands with 3500 troops from the Fifth Infantry Brigade as passengers.

  • Rupert kindly shares some fabulous photographs from his personal collection - well worth a look.
