Queen Elizabeth II Pitched in During the War as a Mechanic

  • Elizabeth II, longest-reigning monarch in British history, once served her country—and the war effort—as a humble truck mechanic.
  • After debating her royal parents for over a year, the future queen signed up for the Auxiliary Territorial Service in February 1945.
  • She stayed in until after VJ Day, and kept driving herself throughout her life, even teaching her children and grandchildren to drive.

    There’s no question that Elizabeth II, who passed away earlier today, had served her country well during a reign of almost 70 years. The 96-year-old monarch remained a steady, stable force in British life throughout her lifetime of public service.

    While other publications will do a much better job chronicling that service, did you know that HRH was also a truck mechanic during the war?
