Historical Society enjoy talk on Cunard and the QE2

Courtesy of Storm Ophelia, the October meeting of the Arran Historical Society on Monday was very different from the one planned, writes Norma Davidson.

The proposed speaker, David Anderson, was advised by CalMac not to travel and the forecast depleted the numbers considerably. Fortunately, 30 members did attend to hear a talk by Alan Richardson from Beith. A chance meeting with a member of the committee the previous day resulted in him being dragooned into the position of speaker in reserve.

Despite technical difficulties with compatibility of equipment, he gave us an interesting insight into the great liner company Cunard and the QE2 with the aid only of his memory, his mobile phone and small laptop to assist him.
