Here is my collection:
We start, of course, with Victoria. "R" stands for "Regina," Latin for "queen."
Then, we go to her boy Edward the Seventh. "R" now stands for "king," which is also useful if you are a dinosaur or in My Fair Lady (coincidentally Edwardian, by the way).
Next was cousin to the Kaiser and the Tzar, George Five. And it's a good thing Benjamin Franklin was on our side when he established post offices or I'd be looking for a few more Georges:
|He doesn't have a Roman numeral because he was the first G to have a post box|
|Still a functioning box somewhere in the environs of Cardiff.|
But you won't get it from me!
Next, was his younger brother, Darcy, er, George VI, who was a good king, and probably much better than his older brother with his nazi-leaning sympathies might have been. George VI was a brave king through the Second World War. His daughters served as nurses.
And finally, the ubiquitous and long-lasting monarch E-II. Her mum lived a long age, the longest among all the saxon branch of royals in Britain. So E-II could be around a bit longer. We'll see if she can outlast her troubled boy Charles.
And there you have it. A complete set.
I have returned home to the land of E Pluribus Unum (if only). And hope and pray we will not start putting presidents' names on PO boxes, especially not in large, gold, block letters.
