Well in 1945 I wasn't born, but 50 years later in 1995 I was in Hyde Park

I did consider trying to get tickets for Trafalgar Square today but the lineup of Cliff, Will,
and Vera made me reconsider.
Now the parade down the Mall at Buckingham Palace in August 1995 was a really great sunny day.
Had digital cameras had been invented in 1995? I didn't even have a computer.
Doesn't time fly. Blimey, I'm still young but I'm starting to feel old.
I have a trunk where I keep all programs, tickets and other misc items I think may be collectible
or just fun to look at - in years to come.

Regret to tell you all that I was alive and well and five years old sitting on my father's shoulders outside Buckingham Palace and my parents were saying "There's the King and Queen"...seem to remember it was rather noisy!
