This is going to be one of the longest shots ever. Did anyone, or know of anyone who may have been there . My father - in - law was unexpectedly introduced to Prince Charles and Camilla at the Severn Valley Railway at Kidderminster Station. Unfortunately no photos were taken by the media. So as a real long chance ,was anyone there who may have him on a picture???? His name is Nick Giles and works as a volunteer guardsman. I know this goes out in all directions so thought I might as well give it a try.

Any help or suggestions of how I might be able to track anything would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your replies. But I have looked at both these sites. I'll keep hoping someone will come up with something.

But once again thanks for looking and replying.

Belinda, have you looked at the Shropshire Star web page? Also you could possibly put a letter on the letters page of the website and also in the paper to see if anyone has got any piccies.

Good luck

Hi Belinda

I would contact the sites where the photographs are put as they would have put up ones they thought were of interest i.e. edited them. There may well be more of them but they have not published them. (lets hope they have not deleted them in the meanwhile).

Good luck

Belinda, did you put a letter on the letters page of the Shropshire Star? I haven't seen one.



Belinda Report 3 Jul 2008 15:47


I sent a e-mail direct to them but didn't hear anything.
I will try and send a letter for the letters page soon.

thanks again.
