Retired Commodore Bernard Warner on the navigation bridge of Queen Mary 2
Last week, Cunard Line said farewell to Commodore Bernard Warner, as he retired from his role as Commodore of the Cunard fleet.
It was a very emtional time for Commodore Bernand Warner, after spending a number of years as the Master of Queen Mary 2.
A special presentation was held on the bridge of the Queen Mary 2. Commodore Bernard Warner was presented with a number of gifts, from many of his fellow friends, including Peter Shanks, President, Cunard Line and David Dingle, CEO, Carnival UK.
In November 2010, Harry Cotterill, President & Managing Director, Dream Designs Colchester and his father, Brian Cotterill, had the honour of meeting Commodore Bernard Warner onboard Queen Mary 2, during their 2 night voyage aboard the vessel.
Commodore Bernard Warner kindly invited them both to the bridge, to present Harry's drawing of Queen Mary 2, before the ship departed the berth at Cherbourg.
