CWS,
Here is an article that gives a bit of background, a link to the original recipe, and more.
The Guardian (UK)
Pretty interesting!

you are absolutely correct cws.it is coronation chicken.just about every sandwich shop in our fair & vaunted isle sells their own version of it from the awful to the barely palatable.not my cup of tea at all.one never sees it in restaurants as it is,well,so 1950's.

There were several off topic posts removed from this thread.

The title of the recipe has been modified to help eliminate some of the confusion

Harry mentioned correctly that there are as many variations of this as there are sandwich shops.

Here are a couple more:
London burrough of Hammersmith & Fuller.

Regarding the "Isabel" bit which I saw in the original submission, I simply thought that Margi had accidentally put the wrong name in.

I didnt in particular see it "revived" for the jubilee this year, it doesnt really go away. However I personally prefer a lighter fresh and simple version by Queen Nigella Lawson, she has a recipe for Golden Jubilee chicken with fresh mango, chicken and chillies. Fab.

I'm not sure which year Queen Nigella took to the throne, somewhere in between Queen Delia and King Jamie. I'm rubbish on historical facts.

good shot .40! most of the sandwich shops just mix curry powder into mayo which probably doesn't help gather a following either
