Photos taken by Dorothy Brown (then girlfriend) at the George & Dragon, Fordwich, Kent. Appears that William is with his parents outside the hotel.

The George & Dragon still exists.

Not sure of the reason why they were in Kent but William may have been stationed there prior to going to France.

Sent the photo to the Old Classic Car website to identify the vehicle and subsequently, with my permission, the photo has been added to the website http://www.oldclassiccar.co.uk/vintage-standard.htm .
