Thumbs 5 and 6. The half seen white coupé, sorry, no idea what it is.

Thumb 13. King George VI’s Daimler Limousine? Look at the roof, Royal arms?

Shows you what kind of a car enthusiast (= none at all) I am. I didn't even notice the other car in the police pilot thumb! Alas, it's always a blurry mass, but you can see all of it here:

Looks real footage with that cluster of Daimlers - the Windsors arriving at Aintree??

The elderly Humber police car seems to be sporting a “TB” registration which is the County of Lancaster. My knowledge of police force boundaries of 1953 is not strong, but it would seem a fair assumption that this is the leading edge of a Royal motorcade, in the absence of a separate City of Liverpool force. The driver has two pips on his epaulette, suggesting that he is an Inspector, maybe the passenger in mufti is the Chief Constable, although it would be normal for that officer to be in uniform. The footage on the net of the 1950 Grand National says that it was attended by the Royal family for the first time in 13 years.

Aintree was (pre 1974), located within Lancashire rather than “Merseyside”, which would support the Lancs plods
