Royalty At Milford - a Memory of Milford.

In 1962 I was in Cledwyn Evan's class at the primary school. In the Summer terms Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother used to visit King Edward's School in Witley, and Mr. Evans led his class to the roundabout to see her go by. He was enthusiastically ragged about it by the other teachers!
We all stood just by the walnut tree on the left of the picture. We waited, but not for long. The Rolls-Royce came whispering up to the roundabout and sailed past us. Then I saw the Queen Mum lean forward to tell her driver to pull up, and he reversed the car back to us. Mr. Evans gulped, she waved and smiled at us through the window, then suddenly they were off towards Witley. I noticed Mr. Evans was very red faced!
