The Latest News From ASDIC 


Welcome to the September edition of Ping! Read on for updates from the ASDIC team, including how to join our brand-new Community Hub.

A Few Words From Tracy 


Last month, we launched the ASDIC Community Hub, and I’m thrilled to see so many of our members sign up in its debut weeks. We’ve developed this tool to create more opportunities to collaborate and share best practice, so I encourage everyone to join in, start conversations on our Forums, or contribute to our News and Resources.

Of course, September brought great change in the UK with the passing of Queen Elizabeth II. Throughout the official mourning period, the Armed Forces led the profoundly moving tributes paid to Her Majesty. While there’s been great sadness, seeing the many thousands taking part has also made us very proud to be part of this Armed Forces and Veteran community.

Remembering Queen Elizabeth II 


It is with deep sorrow that we received the news of the death of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. Throughout her remarkable 70-year reign, her support for the armed forces and veteran communities was unwavering, and her strength and sense of duty was an example to us all. Our thoughts are with the Royal Family during this time, and it is with thanks that we remember the life of this country’s greatest public servant.
