Probably many of you were not even a twinkle ....maybe your Mums were only just twinkles in your grandfathers eyes but I was five and I met my Great Aunt Bella for the first time.
She was visiting her sister for the first time in nearly ten years and she brought me a Coronation Half Crown to celebrate ...at least I am sure thats when she brought it but the memory can play tricks.
The day of the Coronation was easier to remember ...my Nana, my Mum and I sat round our newly aquired 9" Television. The cabinet it was housed in, was four times its screen size. Nana had splashed out for this special occaision ...I think we may have been one of the only families in our road to have one. I cant remember anyone sitting with us but I do remember sitting through it all, for what seemed forever to a six year old, because I knew ...or was told it was something special. Now it is sixty years on ...and I know it was.
If you were more than a twinkle ...what are your memories of that time.
Take Care xx
