LETTER: Beakers were not just limited to Batley!

Not to be outdone by the Batley commemorative beaker shown in the letters page (February 9 edition), I had to send you this picture of one from mighty Dewsbury!

Again it commemorates the marriage of King George V and Queen Mary in 1893.

Isn’t it great that these occasions were commemorated with quality items such as this, which was presumably given to schoolchildren by a then proud council?
