I remembered this story after watching "The Crown" on Netflix. On the photo the Queen as we saw her in Bayeux on June 6th 2014 during the 70th Anniversary of D-Day. It is a funny story how Back to Normandy | Fred Vogels could help a QBP on a British destroyer in the Orient (Shanghai). The mail conversation, somewhere 17 years ago:

Hello Fred - just got on your website by using google. We are celebrating the QBP in S..... next Monday and require to play the National Anthem (instrumental version). Can you help us?


Hello F....

What should I help you with?

By the way what is QBP?



КБП - Куеен'с Биртхдаи Парти

I work for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) as system administrator based in the .........- China.

We are having a party next monday (QBP) and I am required to play the British National Anthem (Instrumental version).

Looking for the MP3 download but can only find with vocal - hope you can help out.

П ...

Hi F....

Yes I can help you

It is in the download area: xx called God save the Queen

I have made it just recently and it is a complete version

Good luck with it and tell the people about the website

Sincerely Fred

Cheers! Got it now.

Before I press the play button on monday, could you please confirm that your dwload version is the original/official version of the UK Anthem.

That's all very nice! I appreciate it

It was a disaster... found 12,956 different version of the anthem yesterday but... with vocals. Was denied by our consul general.

You have made my day! Thanks a lot Fred


As far as I know it is the official version

You should try: sing the lyrics with the music

If you are really English, you will know?.. :D

Good luck and tell me how it was



Неколико дана касније

Фред - само да знаш ... прошло је у реду, још увек не можемо да дефинишемо "званичну" верзију химне, али успели смо да свирамо вашу оркестралну верзију без "буке" од 160 позваних високих званичника. Направили смо КБП и забављали се на предњој палуби на броду ХМС Е .... (разарач Краљевске морнарице стациониран у луци С ..... недељу дана).

поприлично! био је сјајан - наздравио вама од свих запослених који су учествовали у припреми ове манифестације!
