Coronation day 2nd June 1953 in Handcross

At the coronation celebrations of Queen Elizabeth a parade of floats, decorated vehicles, and people in fancy dress toured the village ending in the Recreation Ground.
At the centre of this photograph is an enlarged version of the crown which also appears on picture #1777, picture #885, and picture #886. Furthermore it appears in a video at picture #1779.
Please can anyone add any names? After all it was only 65 years ago!
