When royalty came to town

ROYAL WAVE: Can you help identify any of the locals on the Millicent truck during the 1964 royal visit?

Local historians would like to identify onlookers in this photo of the royal visit to Mount Gambier in 1964.

Taken on February 26, 1954, the photo shows Queen Elizabeth II and her husband Prince Phillip the Duke of Edinburgh in the motorcade.

They are passing a truck holding Millicent residents who had made the trip to Mount Gambier for the royal visit.

If you can help with any names for this photo please contact SEFHG researcher Colleen Hammat via the South East Family History Group.
