    The driver of the coach was my grandfather, Mr Jack Strickland BEM. He worked at a drayman for Whitbread's in London for many years. He also drive the Lord Mayor of London's coach in the annual parade and participated in the Horse of the Year show for many years. He died in 1980. Was wonderful to see this footage.
