Help a PhD

I AM doing some preliminary research for a PhD on the ceramics made for the life of Edward VIII later Duke of Windsor, who abdicated the throne in 1936. He visited Hastings in 1927 on April 6 to open the White Rock Improvement Scheme, visit the Royal East Sussex Hospital and dedicate the Fire Hills Uplands.

A commemorative teacup and saucer were made for the visit. I was wondering if any readers were there on the day and remember the visit and have any memories that they would wish to share with me? Do they remember getting the cup and saucer?
