Nice clear photo of an Australian Navy S1. Note white side walled tyres. Ceremonial vehicle perhaps?

The photo was taken during a royal visit to Nowra, 1956. Later model S1. Similar number plates and white walled tyres to S1 in post #1.

Well done Tommy!  :D

Easily the best S1 Navy shots I have ever seen! Interestingly both cars are different colours, which should revive a debate from years ago, as to what those colours might be,
