The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh came to Waterloo's Sandell Street on Friday to visit the Union Jack Club which celebrates its centenary this year.
Her Majesty and His Royal Highness were greeted by the club's president Vice Admiral Sir David Dobson and its Comptroller, Brigadier Johnny Rickett CBE.
During the Royal party's tour of the club facilities they viewed the Victoria Cross Board and photographs of recipients, and met members of staff who contribute to the running of the organisation, including the barman and some of his team in the club bar.
The original Edwardian club building at 91 Waterloo Road was demolished in the early 1970s and replaced with the current building which was opened by the Queen in February 1976. Between 1907 and 2000 more than 15 million people stayed at the club.
July 2004 marked the 100th anniversary of the laying of the foundation stone by the Prince of Wales.
