I just want to let you all know that I've been able to lower the overseas prices by a whopping 50p, after sending the first couple out to establish the cost.

If the people who have already bought at the slightly higher price would like the 50p refunded, we are more than happy to do this - please just email admin@TheQE2Story.com and we'll sort it for you.

I was absolutely delighted with my new QE2 Story Badge when it arrived in the post this morning and have been wearing it all day.  In fact I  think it looks better than in the photo shown in the QE2 Story shop.


Rob asked forum members to take a photo wearing the badge at interesting shippy places.  I will think about doing that when we are out and about at 'shippy places' but in the meantime I hope you like my photo of the QE2 Story badge taking pride of place on a QE2  picture that has a special place in my house.    

Looking forward to hearing what other forum members think about the badge and seeing photos.

I don't know if this was intended but looking at Lynda's photo above, the new badge has the subtle appearance of an anchor.  This is very appropriate since the QSF is now the place to anchor all things QE2.  Well done design team!

Hi Rob, badge 1 arrived today and looks great. It looks subtle yet, will stand out to those of us that love the ship.

I look forward to spotting others in the future and having a chat.

Many thanks Steve S.

Glad you like it!!  They're winging their way all around the world as we speak.

What do you mean by 'badge 1' ?  Have I made a mistake and only sent you 1 when you ordered more?

Bob What a appropriate description of the QE2 Story as a place to anchor all things QE2. I really like that and think you should use that term Rob within the QE2 Story front page. I did think about an anchor when I placed the badge there so glad you picked up on that Bob. 

What a lovely thought that the QE2 Story badges are winging their way around the world.  It would be wonderful if all our members bought and wore the badge not just at shippy events but to work and  when cruising, so as to start discussion about the knowledge and love of the ship displayed in this forum and the fate of the QE2.  So if you have not ordered your badge yet why not think about placing an order now and show your support for the forum.

Thanks Lynda.  And Rob, please go ahead and use the phrase as you see fit - royalty free!  ;)

Re Lynda's notion about wearing QE2Story badges to work, etc., to promote interest in the QE2:  While having dinner w/a friend last Friday night I mentioned the badge and she began asking questions about the QE2.  When I told her the QE2 was in Dubai, my friend laughed and thought I was joking.  She thought the QE2 was still at sea and was shocked to hear she's in Dubai.  I agree w/Lynda ... the badges are going to be a great way to spread the QE2's story.

By the way Janice - your two orders have been sent days apart - which is a bit daft from a postage point of view, but i didnt notice your 2nd order until the 1st one had already gone!

We received our badges today.  They are brilliant.  Can't wait to show them off to everybody.  Thanks Rob, you're a star.
