One morning in 1897 a Royal Salute was fired...

This Royal Salute probably was fired as part of the vast celebration in June 1897,
throughout the British Empire, of Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee, the sixtieth
anniversary of her accession to the throne in June 1837. The biggest official event
of the Jubilee was the Review at Spithead, England, on Saturday, 26 June 1897.
(Might this have been the date of the LaHave River Royal Salute?)
