Definitely an Austin, probably the A40 Somerset, produced 1952 - 1954.

Centre of photo - Bill Adam ( long term traffic cop) later tranferred to Cleveland and promoted to Inspector

Amazed to see Bill Adam, I wasn't aware of his background. I transferred from Cheshire to Durham in 1972 and he was my shift Inspector at Hartlepool. I think he was 6' 7" and walking around the town centre with him was, shall we say interesting. At 5-45am he blocked the parade room door and anyone who was late would be sent home and told to come back for 2-10 - I saw him do it. I think there would be an industrial tribunal if that happened now.

As this could be an advanced course it could be the A70 Hereford.
