JUBILEE TOUR AND PAST ROYAL VISITS TO MULLARD SITES

Some of you may have seen the news report showing Her Maj boating on the Leeds & LIverpool Canal on the broad beam narrow boat, The Pride of Sefton in Burnley.    As she  cruised along, viewing  the old iron bedsteads, shopping trolleys and old tellies in the canal as she passed by, I wondered if these may have jogged her memory and did she then turn to Prince Philip and say, " I say, do you remember when we went to that valve making place nearby?"   Yes, they did visit the Blackburn site and details of this visit released from the Mullard archives will be the subject of a future blog entry, however, we are following a chronological traipse through Mullard's history here in this blog and as we are only still in 1950, you will have to content yourself with this picture of Queen Elizabeth visiting the Mullard stand at the 6th International Congress of Radiology in September 1950.

Before you all cough and splutter, yes, it is actually the previous Queen Elizabeth, no, not QE 1 but The Queen Mother...........
