The Royal Train

Hi Marty,

Here is a picture taken on the Royal train sometime in the 50's. Unfortunately I cannot remove the picture from the album to check the date for fear of ripping it. The girl in the fancy dress is Rosalyn. The other woman is Queen Elizabeth II's then secretary.

Roz had sent a congratulatory card to the Queen on the birth of Charles in 1948 and upon the Queens first visit to Canada Roz was invited to attend ceremonies on the train. Unfortunately the Queen was otherwise engaged at the time Roz was there.

Thanks Bob
