Members of the “TheQE2Story” discussion forum for the QE2 will come together on the 1947 Clyde-built Paddle Steamer WAVERLEY and also gather at the Clyde-based Titan Crane on June 27. Rob Lightbody (who runs TheQE2Story.com) states, “The original purpose of the discussion forum was to keep the QE2’s legendary story alive after she retired and disappeared from view; however, with the current uncertainty and confusion over the famous ship’s future, we also now serve as a news and resource hub on the internet”. More information about the QE2 and TheQE2Story.com can be found at www.TheQE2Story.com. and click on www.waverleyexcursions.co.uk for PS WAVERLEY information and history.
