British Army Soldiers Training in Kenya bid farewell to their departed Commander in Chief Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II through a memorial service on the day of her funeral.
The memorial service was presided over by Batuk priest, Andrew Thomson before the soldiers followed the live proceedings of the funeral at Westminster Abbey in London and the burial at St George’s Chapel in Windsor.
Led by the unit’s commander, Duncan J. Mann, the soldiers hailed the queen for her presence in the army adding that HRH was a resolute supporter of the armed forces who provided unequaled support around the world.

They were joined by local staff, family, friends, local leaders and administrators to bid farewell to the longest serving Monarch in the history of Britain and the United Kingdom who died aged 96.
