Queens Coronation

2nd June 1953
Queens Coronation

About this memory

Duddingston camp organized its own Coronation in 1953. I am on the Queens left and I think on the right was a girl called Betty. Cant remember what the queens name was. My father made the crown. The other pictures are of our “hut” which was an officers quarter. A privilege indeed.
