Is this a royal event?

This photo was taken in Watford about 1928. The boys were born in Dec 1921 and Jan 1927. The younger one has a flag and the older one is probably a drummer boy. What could this special event be?

I would be grateful for any suggestions,
Margaret in Canada

Hello Margaret

I can't tell you if this photo was taken for a royal visit but you could try contacting the local newspaper for Watford or also their library/local archive, either of these might be able to give you further information. A google search should bring you websites for both. It is a great photo!

Hello again

I just did a google search for "events in watford 1928" which brought several results but possibly of interest was an item on Watford street market which closed on 22nd September 1928 before moving to another site. Do you know if the family had market connections? if so perhaps the traders had a procession and the children dressed up?

Good luck

Rita

Thank you so much for your replies. I think it is indeed Empire Day, probably May 1929.

I'm very grateful for your help,
Margaret in Ottawa (where we still celebrate Victoria Day in May !!)
