"Hello.I'm the Queen. Do you mind if I come in and have a look around" - Sheffield 21 October 1937

I've just posted some more information on an article that I wrote in 2008. It concerned the Royal Visit to Sheffield in October 1937 and in all the information I collected I did not know Mrs Damms first name. A check on Free BMD revealed that her name was Helen
