Land Rovers everywhere - Royal Visit 1963(?) Brisbane
« on: July 02, 2018, 10:43:07 AM »
This photo just came in and is posted with permission.
I'm told it is the Royal Visit in Brisbane, in, I believe 1963.
Land Rovers everywhere, including Gun Buggies!!!!
Also note the helmets in the lean Land Rover!
I have a 1200 dpi tif file of this photo if anyone want it - it is 350mb, but I've taken out some of the Landies in individual photos.
The limitation on the scans is the quality of the original photo which is unfortunately on textured paper.

Nice pic, appears to be six GB's, all pre angled guards and still retaining the sill panels.

I have to say, I personally like the Series 2/2a in DBG more than OD. The GBs look very sharp with the full guards too.

Fantastic photo.

Looking at the closeup of the Ferret, is the ARN 113-203? The ARN Register lists that number going on to a 2A GS in 1964, and that vehicle then going to SVN
