HM QUEEN ELIZABETH ( 21/09/1926-08/09/2022)

In accordance with sport everywhere tomorrow’s Breedon Highland League match between Nairn County and Strathspey Thistle scheduled for Station Park, Nairn has been postponed.

On behalf of Strathspey Thistle Football Club – the management committee, players and fans I would like to send our condolences to the Royal Family on the death of HM Queen Elizabeth.

On a personal note in my thirty years as photographer in Aviemore, we photographed most members of the Royal Family but the greatest excitement was when the Queen and Prince Philip visited and I was tasked with two inside photos – you had to be in position well before the Royal Party arrived – the signing of their display portraits in the foyer of the Osprey Suite and then rapidly racing to the Ice Rink for the photo above, while my boss Pavel was photographing all the action outside and following them around Aviemore.
