The QE2 Story November 2014 Newsletter "QE2's six years in Dubai"

Hello from Lynda and the team at the QE2 Story.

Have you ordered your 2015 QE2 Calendar yet?  Details below about how to do so in time for Christmas.

We were pleased to have recently had the opportunity to create two media articles that highlight the plight of QE2 on the sixth anniversary of her final voyage.

Rob Lightbody wrote an excellent article “The Queen’s Six Years in Dubai” for Maritime Matters that details what has happened to the ship since she sailed from Southampton in November 2008.

We contacted Arabian Business in early November to suggest they run a story and they asked us to come up with quotes from the QE2 Story Forum members for their article “QE2 fans voice outrage as new images show iconic ship left “to rot in obscurity” in Dubai port”

Both these features were picked up by a number of other sources but there has been no comment from Dubai so far.

QE2 Story 2015 Calendar available to order now in time for Christmas

The Photo Competition has generated some beautiful images that Alan Snelson, former QE2 Photographer used when putting together this fabulous 2015 calendar.   It is now available to buy online and there are several mailing options to make sure you receive your Calendar in time for Christmas. 

QE2 Story members, who visited the Cunard Building in Liverpool in June, appreciated the time taken by Joseph Garnett the manager of the Cunard Building to show us around the building including his behind the scenes tour.  We decided that we should send him a copy of our calendar to say thank you, and were delighted to receive this photo from him.

Full details of how to order a calendar can be viewed on this page.
