    Background: THOUSANDS OF LONDONERS IGNORED DARK SKIES AND DRIZZLING RAIN TODAY (SATURDAY) TO ENJOY ALL THE SPLENDOUR AND PAGEANTRY OF THE ANNUAL LORD MAYOR'S SHOW.

    ROUSING CHEERS GREETED THE COLOURFUL PROCESSION AS IT WOUND ITS WAY THROUGH 1 1/2 MILES OF FLAG-BEDECKED STREETS. THE THEME THIS YEAR WAS "EXPORT AND PROSPER", AND 24 TABLEAUX TOLD HOW BRITISH INDUSTRIAL SKILL AND POWER TURNED RAW MATERIALS INTO FINISHED PRODUCTS AND SENT THEM TO EVERY PORT IN THE WORLD. HELPING TO TELL THE STORY OF COAL WAS A CHOIR OF 60 WELSH EX-MINERS.

    THE LOUDEST CHEERS WERE FOR THE NEW LORD MAYOR HIMSELF, SIR RALPH PERRING, IN HIS CRIMSON ROBES AND GILDED COACH DRAWN BY SIX GREY HORSES.

    HE WAS ESCORTED FROM THE GUILDHALL TO THE LAW COURTS FOR THE CEREMONY OF TAKING THE OATH OF OFFICE BY GLITTERING CONTINGENTS FROM THE NAVY, ARMY AND ROYAL AIR FORCE. THIS INCLUDED THE HOUSEHOLD CAVALRY WITH MOUNTED BAND, THE STATE TRUMPETERS AND MEMBERS OF THE ROYAL ARTILLERY COMPANY.
