Launch and Career of a Clydebuilt Icon to be celebrated.

The 43rd anniversary of the launch of the iconic Queen Elizabeth 2 is to be marked by events at her birthplace of Clydebank.

Waverley and QE2 met many times during the liner’s long and illustrious career and I hope that members will take the time to support this event.

Clydebank ♥s the QE2! is an event organised by clyde walking tours, in association with QE2 website and forum and will consist of a 90 minute walking tour of Clydebank including the former site of the world famous shipbuilders John Brown and the area formerly occupied by the very slipway on which QE2 and many other famous liners were built and launched.

In the evening a one hour presentation on QE2 will be delivered by the qe2story’s Rob Lightbody in the Cunard Suite, Clydebank College (College Square, Queens’ Quay, G81 1BF).
