One of Exeter's first Redcoat Guides has died
Lorna Till, one of Exeter’s first Redcoat Guides and renowned for her depiction of Queen Elizabeth 1 for the Exeter Pageants, has died.
A photograph of her in fantastic and ornate Elizabethan dress, taken on the roof of Mol’s Coffee House overlooking Exeter Cathedral, was to become the definitive image of the famed Pageants.
It was in 1987 that Lorna was interviewed by Peter Thomas, the city’s Tourist Promotions Officer as part of the first allocation of Exeter City tourist guides under the Exeter Guided Tours service of Exeter City Council.
After being accepted for training and completing a six-month course she became an exemplary Red Coat Guide.
