1953 Artillery Ceremonial Coronation Crowds Gallacher Parade Procession Terence Terry Cermony Elizabeth

In this evocative black-and-white photograph, taken on June 13, 1953, The Queen's Escort of the Royal Horse Artillery makes its way down Victoria Street in London, marking the beginning of the grand procession for the coronation of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The scene is set against the backdrop of a bustling British crowd, eagerly anticipating the historic moment. The Royal Horse Artillery, a distinguished and ancient regiment of the British Army, is famed for its ceremonial role in state occasions. Here, the 2nd Regiment, resplendent in their scarlet tunics and bearskins, lead the procession on their magnificent horses. The horses, too, are adorned with regal trappings, adding to the grandeur of the occasion. The Queen, who had ascended to the throne following the death of her father, King George VI, in February 1952, was officially crowned at Westminster Abbey on June 2, 1953. The coronation was a momentous event, not just for the British people, but for the entire world. It marked the beginning of a new era, and the people of Britain came out in their thousands to witness the spectacle. The photograph captures the excitement and anticipation of the crowd as they line the streets, eager to catch a glimpse of the royal procession. The sense of history in the making is palpable, as the Royal Horse Artillery, with their ceremonial guns, lead the way, signaling the start of the grand parade. This photograph, taken by renowned photographer Terence Gallacher, is a testament to the grandeur and pageantry of the British monarchy, and a reminder of the historic significance of Queen Elizabeth II's coronation. It is a moment frozen in time, a moment that continues to captivate and inspire generations.
