It has been a good week with all problems solved we hope and plenty to see ashore . Yesterday it was marching bands a sort of Tongan trooping of the colour but no horses . Swords sharpened and gleaming in the sun stamped with the ensigia 'E R '. Wonder where they came from . The French Navy was here dresse3d overall as were we but no gun salute . Funny sort of bweeks some friends on a visit to the botanical garden were introduced to thw Queen Mother who was tucking into fish and chips
