The Duke of Edinburgh’s visit to Coleshill c1973
Coleshill resident Jean Allen gave us this image and fabulous story about a famous visitor from back in the 70’s;
“My son Richard is in the pushchair, I’m the one armed with the dummy and my lovely mother in law, Frances Allen is the one in the glasses offering the Duke a sweet…. he declined!
I know I didn’t see the Queen, I’m pretty sure she wasn’t with him on that occasion. It was very exciting. When my mother in law offered him a chocolate button, he looked at Richard and said “He looks fed well enough”.
