Really pleased with the Badges. They are 16 / 28mm and the logo based on that adopted for the conference. I am very proud to wear my badge now in celebration of the Golden Anniversary of her launch.
A nice wee pin to eventually sit alongside other memorabilia.

The badge is really superb, a wee treasure to wear with pride and use to share happy memories.  Its very high quality and just the right size to be noticeable and discreet at the same time.

Proud to add it to my collection!

Thank-you to everyone who has purchased a QE2 50 year badge.

 Just 10 days since the badge went on sale and we have sold nearly 80 badges.  But we need to sell more!

If you have not bought a badge go to the QE2 shop and purchase, plus make sure your friends who are QE2 fans, buy a badge to support QE2 in the 50th anniversary since her launch.

Just a wee reminder that there is the QE2 50 year badge and the original QE2 Story badge on sale in the shop, so best to check that you are ordering the right one. 

It is easy to order.  Choose the badge you want and click on the up/down arrows to select the correct price for where you are in the world. e.g. UK, EU, Rest of the World.  Then follow the link to Paypal and pay.  So easy!  :)

I did wonder, are these the traditional style pin badge or the butterfly clip fastening.
Iv been meaning to order one since launch day, eventually placed the order today.

Perhaps start a page..showing where we have the badge(s)

They are the same fastening as the QE2 Story badge.

Just received my badges.

Detail is fantastic. I love how the bow goes out of the main frame, that's very nicely manufactured.

Congratulations to all those involved in the production.  :)

Thanks for letting us know you received the badges and for you kind remarks.  We had a good logo design for the badges, thanks to your design skills.   :)

John informed me on Wednesday that half the badges have been sold/allocated.  The badges are limited edition, once they are sold, we will not be ordering more. Best to order sooner rather than later if you want to ensure you have this special badge and remember to choose the 50 year badge and the correct postage option.

Hi Myles, I am sure you will like the badge, let us know what you think when it is delivered. 

I would be interested to know what you mean by "perhaps start a page ..showing where we have the badges" as we would want to cover all the options.  So far we have done the following to promote the badge:

There is this  topic with details, plus a link from the QE2 50th anniversary board
There is also a link from the top of the index page to the shop plus a link from the newsfeed
Information has been put on the forum Newsletter about the sale of badges
There is a page on the event website https://qe2event.com/qe2-50th-anniversary-badge/

Any other suggestions to ensure people are informed about the QE2 50 year badge welcome.

It might be intersting (if your allowed to do such a thing) but do a hands up for the audience  who sailed on QE2... or as is more the case.. Who didnt sail on QE2.   :o

I am pleased the badges are going well.
It would be really special if we all wore our badges at the actual 50 years to the minute that she was actually  launched! Wonder how this could be captured?

From what I gather we are going to have a large number of QE2 travellers aboard. Many of them moved to the other Cunard ships when QE2 retired so it should be a nice nostalgic cruise.

Cunard don't restrict me or any of the other speakers from doing anything like that so I'll give it a go. But there's also a number of other events being held aboard for the QE2 regulars to share their stories!
