This charming pair of boys are celebrating the Queen’s Coronation in Newhaven in June, 1953.

They are Billy Shepherdson as (believe it or not) the Mount Everest Expedition, and David Kemp as a more prosaic Coronation Herald.

The picture comes from the very excellent Newhaven Times, journal of the Newhaven Historical Society.
