We Need your Help!
for stories for Queen's Coronation Carnival Procession Woolwich
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.
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.
any help that you might be able to give me regarding this request.
If you can
help with any recollections please contact Colin.
