HOW many of the great crowd of more than 2,500 people who crammed the roadway. stopping the traffic outside Tyburn Convent on Sunday noticed the
distinguished prelate rubbing shoulders with them but remaining "incognito"?
There in the midst of the crowd awaiting Benediction given at the end of the Tyburn Walk by Bishop Holland. Coadjutor of Portsmouth, was the Apostolic Delegate, Archbishop O'Hara sampling his first Walk.
The Archbishop had been at the beginning of the walk which started from near the site of the old Newgate Prison and had spoken to several pilgrims including Mgr. Laurance Gouldcr Master of the Guild of Our Lady of Ransom which organises the pilgrimage. The Walk was led by Bishop Holland.
The BBC gave this year's Walk a pleasant surprise by turning up for the first time with television cameras which went into action along the route and resulted in an excellent piece of picture reporting in BBC Newsreel on Sunday night.
