22 minute report on November visit to newly-independent Sierra Leone taken from

The Queen on Tour (COI Collection Volume Seven) 2-dvd set. Can't find a full copy online but first 3 minutes here and parallel newsreel reports on youtube with some overlapping footage such as this one.

Very much the usual format, but slight impression at some points that this was a genuine celebration by happy Sierra Leonans alongside all the stage management and formality.

Liz and Phil arrived and departed on the Britannia accompanied by two destroyers and a frigate, so no planes involved. Also means ample opportunity to bring some of her UK cars with her, with 2 obvious candidates and a possible third.

:king: I like them as well - fascinating insights into old attitudes and histories. And they go to lots of unusual (for us) places, so you never know what might pop up.

Novelty value. We've never used that code before. And there would be lots of tweaks for tropical spec compared to UK.
