Thank you Charles for posting your report.
I am very pleased to learn that the colours are not so faded on the gowns. And it is good to know that the Queen Mother's gown impressed you.
The bit about the purple robe is disappointing. I suppose it is nigh impossible for the trainers of the guides to deal in absolutely every detail. Perhaps it is assumed that people who apply to be guides are already deeply interested and already know a lot.
Anyway, on these boards we will continue to pursue the truth.
