    Can anyone recommend a place where I can get a picture of HM the Queen, suitable for display in an Officers' Mess?

  2. buy one and send it to bucks with a letter and liz should sign it.

    worked when i was at cadets.
     
  3. If your on a Sodexho budget, why not buy a stamp, and enlarge it on a photocopier until its about A2 size.
     
  4. Depends on how much you want to spend. You can download a photo from here print it on decent paper and frame it. Or if you're looking for something a bit more regal, crown-and-sceptre-type thing, try an antique shop; you'd be amazed what you can find if you look carefully.

  10. Seem to remember messes being entitled to pictures of Liz and Phil through the system depending of the size of the mess in question. Eg a very large mess membership can warrant a large colour print signed personnaly by HM whereas a smaller mess might only get a copied signature. The G4 chain might be a place to look and save you money.
     
  11. The National Portrait Gallery has a service where they will do a quality print of any of their pictures on paper of your choice (photographic, canvas etc etc). You can do it through their website. Worth a look.

  13. Only subbies, who end up paying for it.
