I actually remember seeing the Coronation. See my uncle was a TV repairman so the whole family had a set. Used, and re-built, but who cared back then.
I had the thrill of watching the "Cisco Kid", and President Eisenhower telling us to duck, and cover. Because as he said, "...The Terrible Arithmetic is that some Russian Bombers 'will' get through, and we must be prepared".
Scary shit living in the 1950's.
Wow I had no idea that New Jersey was still a Crown Colony! 'Learn something everyday. Anyhow I have every intention of being around to watch Her State Funeral. ...while eating popcorn.
However knowing Her it's going to be a Damned Close Thing!
