Death of Queen Elizabeth II (Sep 22)

The SCSC is sad to hear the news of the death of Queen Elizabeth II. The club has only known her reign and is thankful for the stability, continuity and constancy that the Queen brought to the UK and also many other countries. We are grateful for her strong sense of public duty and ownership - something we can recognise as safety engineers. Our thoughts go to her family, and the new King Charles.
