    The 'sweet' little girl presenting the bouquet to Mrs Baldwin was my mother, Eileen, Nancy Pinniger nee Perkins, daughter of Southampton MP, Colonel Edwin King Perkins who was in the reception party. Mrs Baldwin subsequently gave my mother a doll which I still have.
    I also have a photograph of the presentation signed by Stanley and Lucy Baldwin.
