As you are aware the QE2 – the most famous ship in the world - leaves Southampton, her home port of over forty years, for the final time at 19.15 on Tuesday, 11 November 2008 and I thought you may like to have a permanent reminder of this historic day by purchasing the Southern Daily Echo of the following day, Wednesday, 12 November 2008, which will have extensive coverage of the final voyage. Our team of reporters and photographers will be observing closely the day’s events.
But before that on Tuesday, 11 November 2008 the Southern Daily Echo will be producing a special commemorative supplement to mark the occasion of the QE2’s final voyage. This special publication is certain to be a keepsake for the many followers of the QE2 and will contain fascinating archive photographs and reports of the QE2’s time in Southampton, messages of farewell from some of her many famous admirers, and reports of her new home and setting in Dubai.
