Queen Elizabeth II is celebrating her 90th birthday

When the parents of Queen Elizabeth II visited Ballarat in 1927 , they were greeted by Guides at the Arch of Victory where one of the smallest Brownies presented them with a doll dressed in Guide uniform as a gift for the baby Princess Elizabeth.
