Christmas memories

Christmas is a great subject on which to get started when interviewing older people about their early lives and personal family history. Here is a memory of mine which might stimulate some similar memories which you would be welcome to upload into the Storyvault archive - and maybe your grandchildren will be glad to hear them in years to come.

THE ROYAL BARGE and THE TUDOR PULL

The Tudor Pull is an annual rowing event by the Royal Watermen between two great HRP Palaces, Hampton Court and H.M Tower of London. The Queen's Row Barge Gloriana rowed by the Royal Watermen is escorted by Thames Waterman's Cutters, rigged with ceremonial canopies and flags, from Hampton Court to the Tower of London in order to deliver a Stela to the Governor of the Tower. The Stela is a piece of ancient water pipe made from a hollowed tree trunk which stands on a base of timber from the old Richmond Lock and bears the coat of arms of the Watermen & Lightermen's Company. The cutters are rowed by members of the Livery Companies of the City of London and, in keeping with tradition, each must carry a passenger. The event is organised by the Thames Traditional Rowing Association who support and promote the sport of fixed seat rowing and sculling on the River Thames in Waterman's cutters.
