"It was the annual Rose Queen and I was the soldier stood on the far left, the year is about right".
I think that"Brittania" is Sheila Greenwood who I knew at H.A.G.S
I can confirm it was the Rose Queen & Shiela is the queen.
I am 2nd left -Alan Porter is 4th left -Janet Baron is 6th left her sister Margaret is 3rd left -Margaret Woosey 4th left. My Grandmother Doris Lee made the soldiers outfits & my grandfather made the guns
IAM THE TALL ONE AT THE BACK GLYNIS LEES
I think that the young lady, furthest right, might be Janet Baron, from Lord Street, which is where Margaret Woosey also lived.
The "Guardsmen" from left to right are Jeffrey Hodkinson, Geoffrey Porter, David Chambers (rear), Alan Porter (with sword) and, I think, Stuart Betley. I believe John Davies was a Paige Boy, carrying the orb on a white silk cushion. The cub leading the procession is David Rigby. The young "Lady-in-waiting" at the front could be Jean Harrison.
Hi long shot but does anyone know if Barbara Higham is the young lady at the front (blonde one) I’m searching for a particular photo of my grandads sister on a walking day for all Saints.
1953 is the year that she passed away she took I’ll straight after her walking day and sadly passed she was only 8 years old
