"Greasemonkey On The Throne?"
With 2012 being the year of both the London Olympics and the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, this post seemed timely. Included in one of its carspotting photo posts, this time from London during a 1962 mass transit strike, the Hemmings blog also posted a World War II British newsreel about then Princess Elizabeth's service in the Army as a driver and mechanic. I posted some color photos about this chapter in the Queen's life here. I agree with the post author Daniel Strohl's sentiment that he feels "better about the British monarchy knowing there’s a greasemonkey on the throne," although I am not sure I could comfortably refer to Queen Elizabeth II as a "greasemonkey."
