Sort of Heraldry!
Watched abit of this on the TV and good it was too....there is 108 guilds or tradespeople organisations....the Mercers being the first one registered...others include,leather sellers,Paviours,Fruiters and Fuellers....didnt realise that the word Float goes back to when the it was paraded along the River Thames....will try and go next year,full of history and i for one didnt realise how long it had been going...incidently the only time it has been cancelled was when Wellington was buried.
