Well, would Jubilee-ve it? Lieutenant Kay has a diamond day at Thames river pageant
LIEUTENANT Kay Storey played her part in Sunday’s Diamond Jubilee River Pageant by leading a group of army cadets in a salute to the Queen.
Kay, from Manea, supervised cadets as they helped with the pageant on the River Thames and watched the historic flotilla.
The 39-year-old looked on from a prime spot on Blackfriars Bridge as 1,000 boats, including the Royal Barge, passed underneath.
She led the cadets and some of her fellow instructors in a salute to the Queen and the Royal Family.
Kay said: “It was wonderful not just to have the view that we did, but to be able to salute the Queen and be acknowledged by her was a really proud moment.”
