The Jubilee - part 2

As I said in the last post there are some fantastic excuses to celebrate this year.  The Jubilee is taking the country by storm, products with a Jubilee theme are becoming very popular. 

The Jubilee celebrates 60 years of the Queen succeeding the throne in 1952 following the death of her father, King George VI.  In 1953 her Coronation took place and just like today products with a royal theme were highly desirable.  

This Ultra R786 is a case in point,  the model is also known as the Coronation Twin.

PHSL : 150 this example is part of the PHS collection
MoDiP will be closed on Monday 4th and Tuesday 5th June in line with the AUB public holiday policy.
