Army Days portrays Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor dressed in the uniform of the Auxiliary Territorial Service (ATS), which she joined in 1945 as a Second Subaltern. By the end of the war she was a Junior Commander, having completed her course at the No. 1 Mechanical Training Centre of the ATS and passed out as a fully qualified driver. Amongst the duties she carried out were changing wheels, maintaining engines and driving vehicles such as ambulances. Full of detail, including the ATS badge on Princess Elizabeth's hat and the overalls and flat shoes that were regulation wear. A dark green tool box is by her feet. Skilled ceramic artists have painted the figurine by hand in shades of brown and green to recreate the khaki tones of the World War Two uniform.
