Chairman at the Palace

Staple Hill & District branch Chairman, Ian Campbell was invited as part of a 7000 strong veteran contingent from the Royal British Legion to attend Thursday's Trooping of the Colour.


Guests were treated to spectacular seats in the grandstand, built for the Jubilee Party on Saturday evening and Ian, along with husband Glen Cooper had a perfect view of the famed Buckingham Palace balcony!

''Today was truly a magical experience and something none of us can expect to witness again. I am extremely grateful to the Royal British Legion for the invite and to all the staff and volunteers on the day for making everything smooth.
It was a particular highlight to see Her Majesty The Queen and The Royal Family and of course the fantastic display from the Royal air Force. We could feel the engines shake our bodies, it was immense!'' Ian Campbell
