In the “Cars in Books” column in the August issue mention is made of the late Queen Mary recording the mileage of a motoring trip during the month of September 1938. It would not have required the Queen to make A request for these figures as at her request the Royal cars had an extra speedometer fitted in the rear compartment. I do not recall the source of this information but remember seeing a photo of the interior of one of the Royal Daimlers with this fitting.

[Now why didn’t I think of that? Assuming that the later Royal Daimlers were so equipped and that distance as well as speed was thus duplicated—Ed.]
