The International Story will be keeping up (or at least trying to keep up) with the Glasgow 2014 Baton as it passes through the countries that form the Commonwealth of Nations (and back). We will be blogging about the University’s alumni, staff and heritage connections with each Commonwealth country as the Baton arrives.
The Queen’s Baton Relay will start at Buckingham Palace on 9 October 2013, where The Queen will place Her message to the Commonwealth into the baton. The Baton will then proceed on its 288-day journey, covering over 190,000 kilometres.
First stop – India on 11 October 2013.
If you can’t wait until then, you can check out the connections we have so far uncovered (by no means complete) at the Commonwealth of Nations page of the International Story website. In the meantime, if you have any Commonwealth-related connections to share, please get in touch.
