9. Can you help solve this Hendon mystery?
Queen Mary, the current Queen's grandmother walking around Hendon in May 1917. Can anyone work out where she is exactly?— Mill Hill Hist Soc (@MHHistSoc) July 30, 2021
Presumably this was while her husband, King George V, visited Hendon aerodrome to see the wartime efforts there.
