The Queen's Diamond Jubilee River Thames Pageant

We are off
Overtaken by President steeming off to her place in the lock
Leaving the Lock - we are all in formation already
Out into the river.  Gloom, gloom, gloom
Cutty Sark at Greenwich
Crew on the cruise ship Discovery giving us a "hand"
Helmsmen and crew on Mr David
Big Ben strikes 10 as we sail past
Crowds on the bank - there are still 5 hours to go
Just keep following the steam of President's boiler
Still following the steam
Another onlooker
The Queen's Barge Glorianna
A Dunkirk Little Ship
And another.  My Dad was picked up by one of these in 1940
Crew on one of the motor boats
Robin Hood and his Merry Men
South Sea Islanders
Romeo 2 (Boss No 2)
Some of the manpowered craft
Moored up and ready to go

A Guild Barge
Done it.  Scrutinised and "got the pennant"
CNN broadcasting live
Still broadcasting live.  Oops!
More security
Filming from on high
Grandstand view
Crowds even on the roof
Tower Bridge
The Royal Family
