Underground town in England impervious to flying bombs

An underground town in southern England impervious to flying bombs. A town somewhere in southern England (not named by the Illustrated London News, but quite possibly the Chislehurst Caves) where nature provided safe shelters for the residents - deep caves in which they sleep soundly, oblivious to the flying bombs. Life in the caves in watched over by shelter wardens, who see to the people's comfort and settle their difficulties. Many amenities have been provided, and the cave-dwellers have organised their own social life underground which includes whist drives, concerts and Divine Service. Date: 1944

Chislehurst, Kent: Mr J H Easden of Royal Parade, Chislehurst, puts the finishing

Chislehurst, Kent: Mr J H Easden of Royal Parade, Chislehurst, puts the finishing touches to the casket which will contain the traditional glove the Queen will use at the Coronation. He was commissioned by the Worshipful Company of Glovers, of London, who have been granted by the Earl marshal the privilege of providing the Coronation glove. The Queen has appointed Lord Woolton, Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, to make the presentation at Westminster Abbey.
Oak from the timbers of Nelson's flagship "Victory" has been used in the making, and the casket is lined with purple velvet from which the Coronation robe is made. On the lid in silver are the Royal Cypher, the Arms of Worksop Priory and the Worshipful Company of Glovers, and an inscription plate, mounted on panels of Kentish cherry-wood. The glove, for the right hand, will be of white kid lined with silk.
April 23rd 1953
