3 barks and woofs on “Long Live The Queen

  1. Many of you won’t believe this, but, I remember the black and white footage of her coronation. That tape was flown from London to New York and broadcast that evening. I was really a young boy of 5 or 6 and I ran between the kitchen and living room to watch. I was washing the dinner dishes in the kitchen. I still remember that night.

    • I believe you. I heard that they set up a film lab on the plane and developed it as the plane flew back to New York so that it was ready to run when it landed.

  2. And then of course there is her coronation procession, running for forty two feet across our living room. Fifteen hundred Britains lead soldiers that I started collecting in 1053 at the age of 13. Now I’m 75 and procession is quite complete. .
