Best wishes from Blind Veterans UK to the Queen on Her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee

1 June 2012 10:32

Blind Veterans UK would like to congratulate the Queen on her 60 year reign and on 60 years as patron of Blind Veterans UK.

The Queen became patron of Blind Veterans UK in the year of her coronation and we are proud to have had her patronage ever since. These photographs show some visits to Blind Veterans UK (then St Dunstan's) from Her Majesty over the years.
