QE2 1982 in Malaga Spain painted light grey colour

After the Falklands War in 1982 QE2 was painted light grey with her funnel being painted in the traditional Cunard orange-red with black stripes. The light grey colour proved hard to maintain, and so was reverted to traditional colours in 1983.

Very impractical colour and was soon replaced.
