Prince George and war ambulance
Prince George, later Duke of Kent (1902-1942), fourth son of King George V and Queen Mary, in the courtyard of Buckingham Palace with Mr Hansell, his tutor (second right) and representatives of The Children's Story of the War and of the Belgian Field Hospital, 26 January 1916. 'The Children's Story' was a weekly magazine which sought to explain the campaigns of the war to British children and to find war projects in which they could become involved. Readers were invited to subscribe to a new motor ambulance for the Belgian Field Hospital, and Queen Mary gave permission for her fourteen-year-old son to give his name to the appeal and to be listed as a subcriber. The official handover, shown here, was his first public engagement: readers were told he 'spent a full half-hour in examining the motor ambulance and the hand ambulance which accompanied it, and was highly pleased with all that he saw.'
