There was a fitting send off for the QE2. The day she left was Nov 11 2008 - the 90th anniversary of the end of World War I.

November 11 is Remembrance Day (Memorial Day) in the British Commonwealth and as a veteran of the 1982 Falkland Islands War, there was a special ceremony and fly past before she left.
