The officers and sailors from H.M.A.S Australia were on a visit to Swindon Works on July 13th 1945 whilst their ship was docked at Plymouth awaiting repairs.

She arrived at Plymouth on July 2nd 1945 for a major refit and remained there until December of that year. In this formal photograph the locomotive is decorated with both the British and Australian flags and standing in the centre of the group in the trilby hat is the GWR Chief Mechanical Engineer F. W.
