It wasn't me, as I've only just joined. Either way, the translations there don't help me an awful lot. The final outcome there is that they put it in a sentence, but I am looking to use the phrase as a motto...
Anyone with any ideas?

for the first two I would use "constantia, societas" ... the last is a bit trickier to render and I am short on time right now
something that would fit much more easily into the Latin would be like "we have strength, fellowship, and are proud to be British / and are proud that we are British", but will not make as pithy a motto as you would probably like.
