  • LONDON - PRINCE CHARLES AT SCHOOL 1957. The location shown in the footage is the running track and field at the Duke of York's Headquarters, King's Road, Chelsea. The school was Hill House School, who used this facility regularly. The regulation uniform consisted of burgundy shorts, tan shirts, and mustard-coloured round-neck jumpers. Prince Charles attended on a full-time basis from January to June if this was Parent's Day, it must have been before the school broke up for the summer holidays. The gent in the dark blazer who features prominently in this clip is Lt. Col. Stuart Townend (1909-2002), the founder of the school.
