Her Majesty The Queen

As Chairman, and on behalf of all trustees and volunteers, of the Royal Ulster Constabulary GC Foundation, we are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Her Majesty The Queen. We wish to offer our sincerest condolences to our Royal Patron, His Majesty King Charles III and to all the Royal Family, at this the saddest of times, as we mourn the loss of our wonderful sovereign Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

On 23rd November 1999 she awarded the George Cross to the Royal Ulster Constabulary for collective gallantry. In her citation she made particular mention, twice, of our families - something we police officers all very much appreciated. Over the years she met RUC GC officers and their families on many occasions and her understanding and empathy meant so much to them all. She was an inspiration to every one of us. She will be forever in our memories.
