I am there, as is my mum and dad, a family called Melbourne (Mick and his wife) from Hernes Oak; May and Dunk, two Scots who emigrated on the same ship as us and lived in Newborough. Interesting how many people dressed up for the day including somebody wearing a tie. I wonder if the Queen remembers us?
