Meeting the Future Queen
This is a photograph taken in 1945 at the Liverpool Victory Parade. That is the then Princess Elizabeth who is now the Queen meeting the troops. She has just stopped to talk to Colour Sergent Thomas Newton because he was wearing his medals and she said "My word you've been in the army a long time" to which he responded "yes ma'am!"

The reason this is my peoples story is because Thomas Newton was my great grandad. It my understanding that he was in the Ak Ak 470 Regiment and had just got back from 3 years in Burma. Does anyone else recognise themselves or someone they know in this picture or even where about's this photo was taken or who took it!
