Imperial Service Medal presentation to Bruce Netherton at Restormel Castle, Lanlivery Parish, Cornwall. June 1989

Bruce Netherton, centre, accompanied by his wife Florence, receives the Imperial Service Medal from Beric Morley, Regional Director English Heritage. Mr Netherton worked for 40 years at Restormel Castle, 30 of them in charge as custodian, and had already the Queen's Jubilee Medal. Bruce, who retired in 1986, remembers welcoming many visitors to the castle including Queen Elizabeth (later known as Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother) in 1950 when the entrance gates had to be taken down to allow her Rolls Royce to enter the grounds.

The Re-cut Koh-i-noor Diamond, 1852 Featured The Queen Mother Print

The Re-cut Koh-i-noor Diamond, 1852

Engraving of the re-cut Koh-i-noor ('mountain of light') diamond, 1852. Previously owned by the Mogul emperors, the Persian Shahs and Ranjit Singh, the Lion of the Punjab, it was presented to Queen Victoria by the East India Company in 1850. The diamond was displayed at the Great Exhibition of 1851, where various experts felt it displayed insufficient fire. It was decided therefore to recut the stone. This was undertaken by Guillaume Coster, over 38 days, in 1852 to produce a round diamond of 108 carats (shown in the image). In 1937 the diamond was placed in a crown to be worn by Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother at the Coronation of King George VI. The crown and diamond now reside at the Tower of London
