    Default Autographed Portrait photo of Princess Mary, Colonel in Chief of the ATS

    I was very pleased to be able to buy this large framed photo portrait of Princess Mary.

    She has autographed it. The ink is somewhat faded now.

    I think she looks very like HM the Queen.

    Princess Mary was famous from her gift tins to the troops in 1914.

    I have several other pics of the Princess: I will add them to this thread in time.

    Cheers, Lez.

    It's a great portrait Lez, the resemblance to HM the Queen is uncanny. Nicely framed too.

    Thanks Adrian.

    Here are two more pics of the Princess. These are press proof photos for the Derby Daily Telegraph. (Now long gone)

    Cheers, Lez.

    I thought I would add this link from Pathe News. There is a wealth of goodies on that site.

    Here HM the Queen visits the ATS in 1943, Princess Mary can be seen with her:
