HRH Prince of Wales: Patcham 1921

By David West

This photograph was taken on Church Hill, Patcham, opposite All Saints church. It shows HRH Prince of Wales being driven to the Chattri for the dedication ceremony which took place on 1st February 1921.

The lady at the upstairs window is a relative of mine, and the occasion of her waving to the Prince of Wales as he passed by has been related down the generations.
