Today we turn to Rowlands Castle for memories of the Queen’s coronation celebrations of 1953.
In the fancy dress competition, the Queen of Hearts – complete with tray of jam tarts – is Jeal Curtis (nee Cross).
Jeal, of Nobes Avenue, Bridgemary, Gosport, says she was sorely tempted to eat the contents of the receptacle hanging around her neck.
She says the girl dressed as a nurse next to her is Judith Olding.
But she can’t put names to all those in the group photograph and wonders if readers can.
Jeal says: ‘I think the two boys on the left had the surname Baker and the girl in the middle with the rosette was Susan Carpenter. It would be interesting to hear from any of them still living locally.
‘I remember the village held a big celebration and that a villager dressed as a clown really frightened me.’
