Diamond Jubilee medallion depicting 4 generations of the Royal Family as seen. The signature below says Greuber, but he was at the BM. Not sure if they were sold in conjunction with the BM or not. They are quite common.

There a quite a few varieties, not all made by Grueber. Some have advertising reverses, Remington Typewriters for one and there's also a Big Wheel variety.. Also Australian and Canadian varieties.

That's fairly astonishing - Bugger Bognor looks the same age as his dad.

Incredible that the last two words uttered by George V on his death bed, will be the ones he is most remembered for saying ! 

(and yes, he does)

Wrong he was in a coma on his death bed and its been reported that these were NOT his last words , allegedly.

His last words should have been "Don't let that bloody doctor near me with that needle"
