OBS Badge

Alan Dean OB [1948 - 1953]  was a member of the School CCF contingent that provided the Guard of Honour on Sunday 31st May,1953, for a combined Coronation and Civic Service at St. Mary's Church. The Mayor, members of the Corporation, Civic dignitaries and representatives of a cross-section of the town's life assembled in Hamilton Square  before walking in procession to St. Mary's Church. After the service the procession made its way back to Hamilton Square. Alan has obtained from Birkenhead Library a copy of an article in the Birkenhead Advertiser on Wednesday 3rd June, 1953 which also has a very poor copy of a photo of the procession.

Does anybody recall the event or have any photos? If so Archives would like to add copies to our records and we would forward copies on to Alan.
