The Red Lion, 66 St Johns Road, Tunbridge Wells in the 1911 Coronation of George V

The Red Lion, 66 St Johns Road, Tunbridge Wells in the 1911 Coronation of George V

Kindly provided by Sally Fox

The Coronation procession was 1911 and the Buffaloes [R.A.O.B} Lodge float is outside.
Family sources confirm that the taller boy on the float is my father, with his sister and brother.
His step-father, the landlord George Cowley, is standing in front of him in the light suit [no hat].
It seems his tenancy was short-lived, perhaps only 1910-12 at a guess. ***
