Colour pictures of the 1953 Coronation Procession are rarely seen.This book fills a gap for both casual readers and military uniform buffs like me who need colour photos to confirm the uniforms of all the Commonwealth units that took part in the parade.Great for setting the scene for those who were not there and adds colour for those of us who watched in black and white.

Books like this don't come along often, where previously unseen photos get an airing for the first time. It's an amazing record of the day in colour and brings to life one day is history over 60 years ago. It's well worth buying.

Good well written text of how coronation was implement with full nostalgic colour illustrations, which are badly let down with no annotation of place names to each photographs. Each scene of streets where procession ran do not give any clue to its whereabouts, although Londoners should be able to recognise some, but not so obvious to these living outside London.
The second half of the book shows many illustrations of various military forces marching along the route, again badly let down with no annotation, very annoying as one will want to know who they were and where they came from.
A very disappointing book regarding the illustrations and the authors should have made more effort and trouble to identify and label each photos for the benefit of these living away from London and for the people who take interest who was involved in the procession.
