What I only discovered at second glance was that a number of these vehicles appear to be right-hand drive.

Of course the most high profile motor mechanic attending to these vehicles was the late Queen Elizabeth II

Thank you, Guscha, for this powerful, moving War II history. Tho' senior Packards exported to oil-rich Canada and South America, didn't realize they were routinely sent to Britain after the advent of 1935-on juniors, but then such a huge need for large ambulances anything but routine. Thank you, sir.

I would call that changing a wheel. I would pay big money for a clip of Princess Elizabeth with two tyre levers and all 53 kg trying to break the bead on a WW11 military tyre. It is just not going to happen. Great photo, HRH was just a legend and sadly missed.

You're right Peter, changing a wheel it is! Although by the look of the lack of tread on the tyre it too needs changing!

Chris (Packard Newbie), I missed your contribution so that my reaction comes more than five years late but better late than never: thanks for the good words.

Mike (su8overdrive), you're welcome!
