First Mayor of High Wycombe was Rodger Outred in 1285

Did anyone see this in The Daily Mail Weekend Magazine? Lots of old photos from around the country changed into colour.

This is the newly installed Mayor of High Wycombe, William S Toms on 9th November 1932. High Wycombe has an unbroken line of mayors going back to Rodger Outred  in 1285. Until 1485 a mayor has held office for two to three years. Now he is elected annually.
On 30th June 1985, a procession took place to celebrate 700 years since the first Mayor of High Wycombe.
