Found a coin I thought I lost

Post by arohk on Sun Aug 13, 2017 9:30 pm

So I was going through a old photo album that I have that my mom gave me, It has photos of us as kids and stuff like that. Well I haven't looked at it for years as it was in a box in the storage room I was clearing, as I went through it I found an item I thought I lost. To most its just a coin but for me it's something special. After the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana they came to Canada. I was in the air cadet's at the time in N.S. we were in formation when they got off the plane, both of them stopped to talk to a few of us and they gave us all this coin. Diana was really nice to talk to so was Charles, they personally handed all of us the coins, I was so happy that I found it as it brought back great memories of that day. The thing I didn't know until recently was there were two coins made one was copper and the ones they handed out were silver ones, now it is with all my other cool coins I have.

Larry, that's fantastic story and piece of history. Interesting timing, considering the Invictus Games are in Toronto, in 40 days. Founded by Prince Harry.

I heard about this when he first started this, not hard to see he is Diana's son.
