On behalf of The Order of St John and from all members and volunteers from St John around the world, we would like to offer our warmest congratulations to Her Majesty The Queen as she marks 70 years of service to the people of the United Kingdom, the Realms and the Commonwealth.

To mark this joyous occasion our Lord Prior has written a letter to all St John people.

I hope you will all join into the celebration on this very happy occasion. Her Majesty, our Sovereign Head, has always taken a keen interest in our Order, and we thank her for her unwavering and indefatigable devotion to her duty and her support of the Order in many ways.

Prof Mark Compton
