A rare glimpse of Cobourg in colour around 1948.

Parades along King Street, baby contest in Victoria Park, soldiers marching down King Street and more.

If there is enough feedback Today’s Northumberland will post other videos including film of the actual launching of the HMCS Cobourg Corvette and film of her crew.
