Heirlooms-the Unwanted kind?


Valued Member
In light of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations, I wonder how many people have the items from the time Her Majesty was crowned Queen in 1953? My late mother had kept everything, books on the Royal Family (over 50 years old), the four booklets concerning the Commonwealth tour of 1953/54, the mugs given to us children at the time and even a Book on the Coronation itself which was given out by our local council. Are these destined for the rubbish-bin as no-one seems to want them? :(:(
