Prior to his retirement this year the Commissioner of Police Eddie Yome
QPM CPM was invited to be the Inspecting Officer at today’s 21 gun
Royal Salute at Grand Battery celebrating Her Majesty the Queen’s
accession to the throne.
The Commissioner, accompanied by the Commanding Officer of the
Royal Gibraltar Regiment, Lt Colonel David King, inspected the gun
battery furnished by members of the Regiment’s Headquarter Company
(Thomson’s Battery). After the gun salute the Commissioner and his
wife were hosted to drinks at Grand Battery House by Lt Col King. At the
reception the Colonel presented the Commissioner with a polished
105mm gun shell and a framed photograph of the Gun Salute.
In a brief address the Commissioner highlighted the very close bond
shared by the Regiment and the RGP fostered by many years of joint
training, mutual respect and friendship.
