The pictures show my Father. George Wilson, and I. I’m at the back with glasses. We had bought a new Crown and Tiaras, my father had the medal made and donated it. I believe these were the Carnival committee, Fred and Mary Thopose (sic), Arthur Mason, George Wilson and Sid Alterman? It was taken around 1959/1960 at the Haystack Public House. I wonder if they are still in use, I believe they bought these items as every time they needed the crown etc they had to ask a lady if the could borrow them and each year she was getting less willing to lend them!
