Very interesting, think that I went that year.

note the Buck & Hickman stand at the start.

If my memory serves me correctly, HMS Magpie was commanded by the Duke, and the model was later placed on display on board HMS Britannia, wonder if it is still there in Leith?

After this visit, the "Duke of Edinburgh" trophy was awarded, but I think it was a few years later.

The visit was reported in ME, and the then editor J N Maskelyn is to be seen showing the Duke the railway & Traction Engine Models.

In the Model Engineer Exhibition of Aug. 1954 I submitted a set of tools which I had made in the Army Apprentice Curriculum. They won a Diploma of Merit signed by J M Maskilyne. Chief Judge. Goes on to say it was organised by Percival Marshall & Co ltd.

No he didn't. He only opened the 1952 exhibition.
