A Gift of Uniforms

Mrs E Palmer of Luton has very kindly donated to the Society some LNER guards uniforms. They originally were issued to her father who, for many years, was stationed at Luton (Bute Street). There are five jackets, seven pairs of trousers, one waistcoat and one top-coat. We are very grateful to Mrs Palmer for her generosity and to Ken Manton for making the contact.

The text in this Quainton Railway Society publication was written in 1978 and so does not reflect events in the 36+ years since publication. The text and photographs are repeated verbatim from the original publication, with only a few minor grammar changes but some clarifying notes are added if deemed necessary. The photos from the original publication are provided as scans in this internet version of this long out of print publication.
