“I would like to take my visit here today as an opportunity to thank you all,” the Queen added. “I am always struck by the remarkable resolve with which you carry out your vital role.”

She continued: “There will no doubt continue to be significant threats and challenges ahead… Because of the nature of your work, it is without public recognition, so it is on behalf of the country that I say to you all, thank you.”
