Below are some pictures of the Queen Mary. Even though we had some personal experiences, we did not capture any evidence with our cameras, but, we did get some great EVPs. One of them was of a little girl named, "Jackie," who has been stuck there for over 50 years. One of the great things about Jackie is that you can hear her out loud. If you ever have the chance to see the documentary by the late Peter James, "The Ghosts of the Queen Mary," you will hear the interaction Peter has with Jackie. She even sings the song, "London Bridge is falling down."

Our K-2 meters responding in unison with the interaction of a spirit when we asked yes and no questions in the engine room. A crewman died there when he was crushed in a doorway by a large gear closing. (Actual doorway below)
