Request for stories for Queen's Coronation Carnival Procession Woolwich 1953

The following request is from Katie Daughen of ITN Productions.

I am currently working on a documentary about the Queen's Coronation in 1953 and came across your website while doing my research. We have found some archive colour footage that was taken in Woolwich around the time of the Coronation. The footage includes what we judge to be the Metropolitan Borough of Woolwich Coronation Carnival Procession with shots of many of the groups and bands that took part in the parade. We also have shots of the Queen and Prince Philip's visit to the area (we think it might have been around Shooter's Hill) after the Coronation including Queen Elizabeth being presented with flowers.

It would be fantastic to get in contact with some of the people who featured in the parade or were there when Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip visited the area. I am wondering if you might have been at any of these events I would like to share your stories.

I appreciate any help that you might be able to give me regarding this request.

If you can help with any recollections please contact Colin.
