The Right Worshipful Mayor
of Hastings,
Alderman H.W.Rymil, J.P.

I am delighted to write a foreword to this book which is given to you as a Coronation Souvenir by the Council of our ancient Borough. I know you will treasure it as an ever-pleasant  reminder of the Coronation of our gracious Queen Elizabeth II. In its pages you will find the splendid story of the part our Sovereign plays in the government and well-being of her people.

I feel sure that you will be especially interested in the picture of our Queen when, as Princess Elizabeth, she visited Hastings, and when as the picture shows, the children of Hastings gathered together to show their affection and loyalty to Her Royal Highness.

GOD SAVE THE QUEEN
