Cadet Sea Ranger Tegan Luscombe, aged 12, attended Buckingham Palace on Monday 18th April to present a card she designed for the Sea Ranger Association to celebrate the 90th birthday of Her Majesty The Queen.
Presenting the card to Christopher Sandamas, Chief Clerk, Private Secretary’s Office, he thought that Her Majesty would find it “a lovely card, and a fond reminder of her Sea Ranger adventures”, and said that it would be given to The Queen that evening.
Her Majesty and HRH The Princess Margaret were both invested as Sea Rangers in the 1940s.
Sea Rangers, now in their 96th year, ran a competition to design a card to be presented to Buckingham Palace.
The winning designer is a Cadet Sea Ranger from SRS Churchill in Brixham, Devon. Her design features images of Sea Rangers taking part in activities such as sailing, camping and canoeing, and the central image is a photograph of Her Majesty in Her Sea Ranger uniform in the 1940’s.
Competition entries were short listed by Sea Ranger Association Trustees and a winner was chosen by Moonpig Cards director Sarah-Jane Porter. Moonpig printed the winning card design.
A copy of the card will feature in The Greeting Card Association’s May exhibition to celebrate The Queen at 90.
Tegan said “This is a true once in a life time opportunity”.Follow
