The Second Tudor Rose Dish 1954 - 1967

This Rose Dish records many local as well as national events. In 1956 the centenary celebration of the first sounding of Big Ben was held in silence because the clock was undergoing repairs. In 1959 the MP for Westminster, Sir Harr y H ylton-Foster, was appointed as Speaker of the House of Commons.

In 1960 the Tobacco Box was taken to Buckingham Palace for inspection by the Queen and Prince Philip and in 1963 the Society celebrated its 250th Anniversary.

The death of Sir Winston Churchill, and Sir Francis Chichester’s epic solo voyage around the world complete the dish.
