Coronation of George VI - Britannia arrives

Arriving in Handcross Recreation Ground as part of the parade celebrating the coronation of King George VI is Britannia, riding on the roof of a old Ford car (or similar). Perhaps her chariot broke down!
The true identity of Britannia is not known, but she looks exactly how I would wish her to look.
Select Open Document to view another picture of Britannia and her trident, and also a close up of her.
