The QE2 Story 12th Anniversary
25 January, the birth of the Scottish Baird, Robert Burns was chosen by Rob Lightbody as the date to launch The QE2 Story website and discussion forum, in 2009
A message from Rob Lightbody:
"I can't believe it's been 12 years since I started the forum as a refuge for those of us who were missing QE2 just after she retired, and wanted to continue to celebrate and remember her as she was. Within days the forum stopped being my project, and became one shared by everyone who contributes to the community that it is today. Thank you everybody, long may it continue!"
It is a credit to all of our forum members that the QE2 Story has become such a successful internet forum. We still have active members who registered for the forum on the first day, week, month or year. We also have younger members, such as Thomas Hypher and Brandon Sterkel who were 14 and 15 when they first joined the forum and continue to contributed so much today. But no matter when you registered to be a member of The QE2 Story, or your age, your input has contributed to the success of keeping the memory of QE2 alive. Thank-you!
Let’s raise a glass to toast the success of our forum and a toast for everyone’s good health!
Good luck Rob, an early post
