Our colleagues at our VCH central office at the Institute of Historical Research remind us that Royal Jubilees have a special place in the history of our project. The Victoria County History was dedicated to Queen Victoria and was intended as a lasting celebration of her Diamond Jubilee in 1897. On Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee, in 2012, that royal dedication was renewed.
In 2013 we published our first big red book since 1905 and 1907. Our 2013 book was amongst the first to carry our revised dedication to Her Majesty in her then diamond jubilee year.
Congratulations to Her Majesty on her Platinum Jubilee.
