The end of the amazing reign of our late Queen Elizabeth II was marked by a truly majestic series of events in London and finally in Windsor and, whilst not wishing to belittle any aspect of the ceremony there was for some of us an additional feature that linked us to the story. Because of the remarkable coverage by the BBC we were able to glimpse many historic locations that retained original William Sugg gas lights going back to well before Her Majesty – indeed as far as HM Queen Victoria when Buckingham Palace was fitted with the magnificent lamp clusters on the front gate posts dating back to 1901 – and still on gas. There are many Sugg lights supplied around the same time to Windsor Castle, most if not all of which have been converted to electricity but still show their handsome age.
Finally, heading to the Chapel for the final rest. RIP Your Majesty.
