My grandfather was an A.R.P. warden during the Second World War, in Coventry. His name was Alfred Frederick Davis, known as Mark and he worked for Dunlop. He lived at Scotchill. I have been told that when the King visited on Saturday 16 November 1940, there is a photograph in existence of him meeting the King. I have searched the newspaper records and other publications and have been very unsuccessful. I was wondering if anyone knew of any other photographs that might be in existence. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hallo hihehim, I have a picture in my gallery of the King being presented to the St John's ambulance brigade members who were on duty during the blitz. My grandfather is the 3rd man from the back. Maybe your grandfather is in the picture.

Thank you for your help. He is not in these photos and I have looked through the ones with the Heritage Centre in Coventry, in the archives the next issue of the paper is missing but I know they exist and were published in the paper

Could this be the image you are looking for? It's certainly Coventry.
Just old and knackered
