For anyone interested: Princess Alice of Battenberg was a truly remarkable old girl. As well as her deserved place as one of Righteous Gentiles, she had previously pretty much single-handledly organised the logistics as well as the medical care during the pre-WWI Greek conflict. Its terrible she has been excised from public knowledge by the Windsors for no other reasons that a) being German (though she was raised in England - as a granddaughter of Victoria - and her father was King of the Admiralty or something) and B) the taint of mental illness: because of her schizo episodes in the 30's. On top of everything else, she was also born deaf. But learnt to lip-read in 5 languages. Go to the alexandrapalace.org royalty site and look up her thread. Wingated 18:04, 2 June 2008 (BST)
