      I served your majesty and country for 28 years in the Royal Navy. It was an honour to have met you twice and a guard of honour at the long missed Royal Tournament. My service was nothing compared to yours for this country. From Rating to Senior Officer you made us feel we were your servicemen and interested in the person. With out sounding disrespectful.
      Your were the best commander I have ever served under. You will be sorely missed to all who’s cap and rank badge bore your crown.
      God look after our Queen.
      God save the King.

      Rest in Peace.
      Our queen was the kindest most supportive person we could all wish for as our monarch.
      She will be remembered fondly not only by our great nation but by the whole world.

      I remember meeting the Queen when I was a junior officer and she laughed at a poor joke of mine. She was visiting RAF Wattisham and I was introduced as working at the small site on the other side of the airfield. I confided in her that we liked to think of Wattisham as that small site on the other side of the airfield. Her gentle chuckle was genuine and her smile lit up her face. She then said seriously that all the jobs we did were important. She was attentive to everyone. I also remember the work that went into preparing for her visit. Stones were painted white and every toilet was immaculate, just in case! God bless you for a life well spent.

      My memories stem from childhood in the 1960s, when the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh were due to come to Scotland for their summer holidays we would look out for the HS748 of the Queens flight, or the big plane with the red tail!.
      We lived across the valley from Aberdeen airport, about two miles away, and when we saw the aeroplane we would watch it land and then go to the end of the farm road and wait patiently to wave to them.
      If they used that road, they had two options, they never let us down, they always waved and smiled.
      Fondly remembered.
