At the coronation of the Queen in June 1953 Monnow Road School hosted a fancy dress coronation party for local kids.

In this photo you can see me (jockey), my elder brother (Bill Ripper - not in fancy dress despite the size of his collar), my cousin Alan Curtis (wearing the fez - it also looks like he has cowboy chaps on) and my cousin Joyce Sanders (princess).

That's got me questioning my photo. I've only recited what I've been told and I think I remember being at the party and I'm pretty certain that was in Monnow Road School. Bear in mind I was not yet 4 years old at the time. The thing is, why would the school have two parties for the same event and the photos show one as fancy dress and the other as smart dress, but wearing crowns? It doesn't make sense.

I'll ask my brother and my mother if the story I've got is wrong. I don't recognize anybody in your photo, Kiwi
