This year, our Patron, Her Majesty The Queen, will be celebrating her Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years of service to this country and the Commonwealth.
In celebration of the occasion, as well as launching our exclusive our Platinum Jubilee collection, we have a selection of the very best books available to buy on our Bookshelf.
MAY BOOK OF THE MONTH
Dame Joanna Lumley has kindly signed ten copies of her brilliant new book, A Queen For All Seasons: A Celebration of Queen Elizabeth II. So some lucky supporters will own this special edition as a super Platinum Jubilee memento.
Joanna admires the Queen hugely and says she’s a marvellous role model for all of us. Dame Joanna is a long-time supporter of our charity. Her father and grandfather were both British Army officers and served in India, where she was born.

THE PERFECT BOOKS FOR FATHER'S DAY
He remembers the bustle of street parties, the smell of bonfires in the air and the exhilarating joy of everyone coming together to celebrate, putting memories of the Second World War behind them.
“In the East End of London, where I grew up, in every street the tables were laid out. It was a very happy time – we were leaving the war behind us and lots of derelict areas were being built up.
“We’ve been so lucky to have had our Queen on the throne for 70 years. Whatever job she takes on, she does her homework.”
