'Through the wonders of wireless, the people of Australia, though 12,000 miles from the scene of the Coronation, were able to follow the service and to receive a mental picture of the splendour of the pageantry within the Abbey. The present Exhibition will enable Australians to complete their impressions of the Ceremony.
The gracious action of the King making available the Coronation Robes for exhibition in Australia is a further indication of the thoughtfulness of His Majesty for his people in this distant part of the Empire.'
