Coronation Dress

Coronation Dress

This might be a little light relief for some of you who are going through a tough time at the minute. Our local festival is on this week and the Historical Society, of which I am Secretary, put on exhibition the dress worn by one of the train bearers at the Coronation in 1953. The lady concerned now lives near me and is a member of the Hist Soc.

The dress was on display for 2 days and raised over £600 for children's and cancer charities throughout Ireland. I thought you'd like to see it. I might also do a 2nd blog post so that I can attach a photo of the back of the dress.

All good wishes
