1956 Admiralty Driving Permit


I was issued this Admiralty Driving Permit in Singapore Dockyard after taking a driving test with the Civilian Transport Manager. I was then appointed a driver for the duration of the Melbourne Olympic Games. The vehicle was originally a US Army Jeep but repaint Royal Navy Blue with large white RN letters on each side. In Invercargill New Zealand I drove a NZ Army Vehicle, a 1949 Ford four door Sedan flat head V8. Those were the days!!! Anyone else out there have an Admiralty Driving Permit thats 53 years old.
