Coronation Day 1953

Queen Elizabeth II, June 2, 1953.

Coronation Day 

Dearest Mummy,

Charlie & I were up at 5:45 this morning & listened into the Coronation Service. It was wonderful to hear it, but of course I had to have my little weep! I expect when we hear the Queen this afternoon I will flood the place!

I went to Church at 11 a.m. (Communion Service) & it was very nice. The little church was full and Mr. Stewart gave a most touching little address. Afterwards Margie, Cy, Tommy, Danny, Baby Peter & Margie’s Mother and Father all came to coffee, so we had a full house! Did I tell you Margie’s Mum & Dad had given them a car? Isn’t it lovely?

This is the Coronation Stamp & I am sending them off to Peter & Ann Sutherland for their collections & they should be dated today.

Not a very exciting stamp…

We heard the news of the climbing of Mount Everest on the midnight news & I was so thrilled. Tonight we go to watch the Hughes television – I wish you could come too. 

Coronation Kisses from Linda & Charlie.

                                                         Love from us all

  1. Hello there. I am a South Indian living in Dallas, TX, USA. I randomly came across this post about the Queen’s coronation and found your blog to be an absolute gem of a reconciliation of the past. Eager to read all your posts and awaiting for more interesting letters that belong to an era long gone
    Thank you for sharing the messages through your blog. Brought me to tears as I am remembering the good old days.
