  1. I remember being in the “cubs” attached to All Saints church. I was part of a flag waving guard of honour made up of cubs, scouts, and girl guides near to the Town Hall.

  2. I was a 6 year old in Miss Eileen Martin’s class, St Joseph’s primary school, Grove Hill. My class was crocodile- marched along Marton Road to a point approximately opposite the Baltimore Hotel. (It wasn’t there then.) The Queen did not pass my school. I think the Royal family came via Longlands Road and joined Marton Road at the Nut Lane junction. We kids were all waving our Union flags and cheering, as instructed to. The Royal cars were travelling at roughly walking pace. My view of HM was a good one. She was waving at us children. I was surprised to see her dressed in a light shade of green. I remember it as a coat but, it may have been a dress. I think she may have had some silverware on her head…a tiara or similar.
    Apart from that, I remember nowt. Amnesia is not what it used to be!

  3. I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both equally educative and engaging, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy I came across this in my hunt for something concerning this.
