Platinum Jubilee Card from the Chelsea Pensioners to Her Majesty The Queen
As a mark of their great respect and affection for Her Majesty The Queen, the Chelsea Pensioners are delivering a card to the monarch, congratulating her on her Platinum Jubilee.

The card, which measures 30cm x 42cm, was designed by members of the Royal Hospital team and features historic images of The Queen and the Chelsea Pensioners sourced from our archive with the help of heritage enthusiast and Chelsea Pensioner John Byrne. 

The Governor of the Royal Hospital, General Sir Adrian Bradshaw KCB OBE DL, and the Chelsea Pensioners have signed the card, which will now be delivered to Her Majesty to mark the centuries-old connection between our community and the Royal family.
