Perhaps a very notable date for the Empress of Australia-6 February 1052. She docked home from Singapore on this day. I had been in the sick bay for the whole journey, boarded home following a shooting incident in Malaya with 1st Bn The Suffolk Regt. Sent home on sick leave, I was later walking down the main street in Cambridge when a passing man reminded me of the situation. Happy to be home, I was almost oblivious to the news. It was the day King George VI had died, and we now were to have a Queen. A day forever in my memory.
