The Herald - - FRONT PAGE -

THE Queen met a 94-yearold Bletch­ley Park vet­eran as she helped mark the cen­te­nary of the Women’s Royal Naval Ser­vice and the Women’s Army Aux­il­iary Corps.

The visit to the Army and Navy Club was the Queen’s first pub­lic event in Lon­don since her Bal­moral sum­mer break.

It came af­ter an an­nounce­ment she will not lay a wreath at the Ceno­taph on Ar­mistice Day this year.

Betty Webb of Birm­ing­ham, was with the then ATS from 1941 un­til 1946. She worked at Bletch­ley Park and said she felt “very priv­i­leged” af­ter meet­ing the Queen.
