  • I attended Torells Secondary School and on the day of Queen Elizabeth 2nd visit to Tilbury . A party of pupils were escorted to Chadwell where we stood looking at the floods covering the marsh between Tilbury and Chadwell St Mary . the water reached to the bottom of Chadwell Hill and westward to outskirts of East Gays . Whilst we were standing there the royal party drove past us

  • I do not know the date this article appeared but on that devastating occasion it was Palmers Girls College that was opened up on the Sunday morning as a flood refugee centre not the Boys. I was manning a telephone there as a St John Ambulance Cadet until Wednesday when most had been accommodated elsewhere or were able to return to their homes

  • I believe the gentleman accompanying Her Majesty is Councilor Albert Jones who lived at Wren Walk in Tilbury.
