February 6th

1922: The Washington Naval Treaty is signed limiting the naval armaments of United States, Britain, France, and Italy… oops, they forgot to ask Germany! Well, that didn’t come back to bite anybody.

1952: Elizabeth II becomes Queen of the United Kingdom, and a million Facebook friend requests in the same day!

1987: Justice Mary Gaudron is appointed to the High Court of Australia, the first woman to be appointed despite years of efforts by Olivia Newton John.
