This has engendered neither dissent nor support. I am going to post my suggestion and am prepared to change if anyone knows differently.

I know very little of pre war cars, all the vehicles appear genuine Navy so they obviously kept things a long time !

Whether this is actually a just post-war Humber Hawk, into which the Hillman 14 had transmogrified, is possibly open to discussion. The radiator doesnít look right for either car, but may be an effect of the sun.

My slight hunch is postwar Hawk for the bonnet side trim - a solid plaque with Hawk lettering in segment at front end. As far as I can tell from not very helpful pics, Hillman 14 had twin parallel trim strips and no name. One other idea I'd had previously was prewar Hillman didn't have wheel trim rings, but postwar Humber did - however that does't fit here. No idea if there were transition phases in immediate post-war changeover when everything was a bit chaotic and some temporary bodging - the grille looks a bit Hillmanish for instance and maybe the wheel trim ring machine wasn't up to proper speed yet.

So postwar Hawk for me, but I'm not banging the table.

Just need a little extra time. Iím inclined to go with the Hawk, back in a while.

1945-47 Humber Hawk, I think. The radiator is probably an effect of the sun, and the bonnet side ornamentation matches the Hawk too. It also has the boot bustle. Knowing what I do of MoD purchasing decisions itís quite possible that the lack of wheel discs is their decision as a money saving ruse.
