Those of us that can remember back that far will recall Silver Jubilee fever in 1977. I didn't live in Billericay then but I can remember having to organize Jubilee flags and new Union flags for all the sites that the company I worked for operated. Such was the fever at the time that I reported directly to the Company Chairman for anything relating to celebration of the Jubilee. He even had the front of the office block which faced the Thames decorated with Silver Jubilee bunting.

I recently was given a copy of a film taken by a local resident of the Jubilee March which took place in Billericay. If you filmed this let me know, just click here for a form to send me an email
