LYMINGTON’S Carnival Queen Miss Jean Bennett (19) is going to have a busy week! Chosen Queen on Monday (August Bank Holiday) at the Carnival Ball by a “well-known personality”, she and her maids of honour will be driven to London on Tuesday to the Gainsborough Studios where they get their outfits.

On Wednesday she descends from the skies by helicopter to be crowned under the eyes of a BBC commentator, reporters and the news reel cameras, and on Thursday she attends the variety concert.
