Thanks to Alan (af1), Trev (TrevBatWCC), and Richard (DicksPics) for your wonderful awards. Thanks also to everyone for all your C&Vs yesterday.
Today I bring a small tribute to the sad events of yesterday, a photo of Balmoral taken back in 1979. I'm sat in the front row, the sixth man in from the left as you look at this photo. A few minutes before, we were all on parade being inspected by HM the Queen. Yesterday we all witnessed the passing of an era.

A wonderful tribute, she will be sadly missed, I was serving in Germany when she reviewed the Army of the Rhine at Sennelager. I have also had the pleasure of meeting her and other members of the Royal Family and have nothing bu utmost respect for them all.

Thanks for sharing Mike

That is a lovely tribute Mike. It certainly is the end of an era. She was a truly remarkable lady who dedicated her whole life to our country.

Excellent photo tribute Mike ….such a sad time ….we mourn her loss over here as well ….I just read she did some
some 20 visits to Canada over the course of her long life . We were all lucky to have her for so long ..

Oh yeah nearly forgot… looks like sporting a moustache back then ?
Best regards Walt
