    At this time Queen Elizabeth was a little girl. That's Queen Mary, her mother.

    This is the Queen Mother, Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, the Queen Consort of King George VI. Queen Elizabeth II was her daughter. Queen Mary was her mother-in-law.

    I found this searching the web. The pilot on the far right is my father, Lt. Joseph T. Beattie of the 379th bomb group. Also present that day were King George VI and Lt. Gen Jimmy Doolittle. This picture was taken in front of the B17 "Four of a Kind"

    I have some original press photos from that meet and greet with "four of a Kind in the background. Doolittle was there and I also think Queen Elizabeth II was there with her mother.

    Why doesn't someone make a memorial page for the bomber group or the plane and link all the pictures there?

    To Archie Melancon, your comment is totally inaccurate. The above photo I see is Queen Elizabeth, mother to the current Queen Elizabeth II. Queen Mary was the grandmother of the current queen and Mary was mother to Elizabeth 11's father.

    Queen Elizabeth II, was old enough to be in service she drove military vechicles and she repaired them.

    My father met the Royal family in front of the "Four of a Kind" B-17 in England in 1944. In fact a copy of a photo of dad speaking to the King was hanging at Tony Seaman's in Morehead City, NC for years.
