The float behind was the Conquest of Everest. Apparently after we had a coronation party at the Swan Hotel in Lydney which I remember and we were all given a copy of the new testament which I kept for years but lost some time ago. I can positively identify the location as being in Lydney at the spot where Hams Road and Tutnalls St. join. The second wand holder from the left is Monica Norris and third girl from left with a wand is my sister Wendy".
