The Clydebank Post reports:
A PRIZED memento from the QE2 will be gifted to Clydebank after she sails into the Clyde for the final time.
As a gift to the town where the world famous liner was built, the flag which will be flying from the ship on her last voyage is going to be presented to West Dunbartonshire Council, and is likely to be displayed in Clydebank.
The QE2... will be making one last visit to Clydeside on October 5 when she arrives in Greenock.
Provost Denis Agnew, who is accepting the pennant, says it is a great honour for the town, especially those that helped build the ship.
He told the Post: “The captain will present me with the pennant, or flag, that will fly on the last voyage.
“I will then present it to West Dunbartonshire Council and we will find a suitable place to display it.
“I think for the people of Clydebank who actually worked on the ship this should be a very proud moment.
“I worked as a store boy in John Brown’s shipyard when they were building the QE2, so it’s a great honour for me to have been involved in a small way before the launch, and now to receive this honour.”
