There's plenty of spare rooms at Balmoral to house those who arrive in inflatables to contribute to the British economy. Even more at Windsor. Or, conversely, why aren't those people marching in fancy uniforms, manning the coastline to repel the invaders?

Whether you are in favour of the monarchy or not, the death of our Queen is a monumental historical event, not only here in Britain but all around the world. There are plenty of other tv channels nowa

One of the Queens pallbearers Luke Simpson is from just up the road in Selston, you have done you country, Nottingham, family & friends proud.   Respect x      

Each and everyone of those eight young men deserve the utmost respect and admiration, what a mammoth task to have to perform under the gaze of the world, which they did faultlessly. They are no doubt

I followed the C17a  from when it was near to landing at Edinburgh, caught it by chance.

Then later as it took off, then again as it neared Northolt to land, but didn't follow the middle bit of the flight.

What's the procedure for that then Stuart? How does one get the info? I assume it's an app or something.

I first tried to get on Flight Radar but it was too busy so I then found another site, I think it was ‘Plane Finder’ and followed it from take-off and disappointingly going way west of Nottingham before turning towards Northants.  A friend of ours took a photo of the plane going over his house in Northants.  When Charles flew from Scotland to Northolt to receive Diana’s coffin from Paris we did see his plane going over our house in Hertfordshire.  It’s a simple pleasure of mine, plane watching!

Each and everyone of those eight young men deserve the utmost respect and admiration, what a mammoth task to have to perform under the gaze of the world, which they did faultlessly. They are no doubt the pride of their regiment and their families and rightly so. Upholding the traditions & standards of the British services to their very best.

Just a few memories of the Queen !!

 

When i was a very tiny innoent little girl about 5/6 The Queen came on a visit to Nottingham. My brother was about 3/4 any way our gran took us both to the square to see the queen, Now if you look at Nat West Bank at the front facing the square there was  a balcony. Don't ask me how but gran managed to get us on to this balcony and we had a good view of the Queens visit. Now in one of the old evening post "Time to Remember "" mag's there's a picture ot this visit can't see us on the balcony though.

The 2nd time that I saw the Queen, was at New Market.

My father in law used to enjoy going  to race  meetings one day  he ask if master and I would like to go to New Market  race's with him. So leaving the boys with my mother in law, off we went. When we arrived one of the men who was taken the tickets was one of my uncles he ask me how many people there were when i said only 3, he said "come on I'll let you go in the paddock slde". For those who don't know thia is where they parade the horse's.  We stood there looking at the horse's and who  should come into the paddock but the Queen she smiled and wave to us. On that day she had two horses running. My father in law just said if you want to win some money put a bet on both horse's this we did, and one came in first, it was the first time that we had ever won anything.
