    Elizabeth and Philip in Belfast in 1949. During their visit to the Belfast Agricultural Show I as a four year old made the formal presentation of flowers to Her Royal Highness. Footage of this was shown in the cinema and I was taken to see my self on the big screen. I was named in the commentary. My name then was Ruth Elizabeth Lyttle, surname now Bennett.
    The clips you are using to illustrate what can be purchased do not incline me, my presentation having taken place shortly after clip 115. I would be so grateful if you could tell me if there is further footage of this event. I have wanted to see the film for years and would love to find that it still exists.
    In anticipation, kind regards, Ruth Bennett.
