Queen Elizabeth in Aden, 1954




In 1954 Britain's young Queen Elizabeth visited the port of Aden, then a British protectorate. There is a short Pathe newsreel available on Youtube about the event. The queen was on a worldwide tour, said to be the first by a reigning monarch. On the 60th anniversary of the visit, a commemorative video was issued by the queen. This is one of several online newsreels by Pathe about Aden.
