Is that car a Morris?.

This 1939 Minx was next to our Hillman Minx. I agree about the beautiful shade of green. Ours is 1959 but is still an "oldie", (like us!), and didn't look out of place. A brilliant day despite "iffy" weather.

British Racing Green, my first car was an Hillman Minx in this colour.

Excellent photo, is it a Royal navy Vehicle?

I wondered if it was a naval vehicle as well!
It's a very smart looking car anyway.

A credit to whoever owned the car,it is BRG and cellulose polished much better than the modern paint,easy to touch up too.

It is a Royal Navy vehicle but the shield on the front is a Royal Marines badge which of course, is a branch of the Royal Navy.

I think the paint is Kemitone Burger Coach body paint, and most likely hand painted
