Royal visit: 1939

Just seven years old at the time, Keith remembers the Royal Visit of 1939.

One that comes to mind is the visit of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth to Canada in 1939. Our present queen was not with them, tho’ was about 13 or 14 at the time. The train carrying the Royals stopped briefly in Oak Lake – for water for the steam engine – but they were off to Virden for an official stop.
