I think it's a Krupp. IMO the front wings of the Henschel are not as "curvy" and the rear mudguards have not so sharp corners.

I'll second Max. IMHO from this point the only sure ID areas are the wheel hubs and on your pic they are typical Krupp.


Thank you very much to both for your help. :)

Hi Sturm,
Yes. It looks like a Bremen III to me.
Cheers,
Max

I'm trying to place and identify this event, it's said to be in France, the architecture looks right, but.... the left flag seems odd? I wondered if someone on this truely expert thread can help? Maybe the motorcycle cops and police uniforms can help? I wonder if it isn't Belgium? And who is the Brit in the top hat?

I found this photograph on eBay.

Hi Stanford9,
I do not think it is a Belgian flag, the stripes are horizontal not vertical and the colours look wrong. Perhaps the Netherlands?
The car appears to be a 1939 Mercury 99A. Another interesting point is that the British solo outriders, and some of the guards on the steps, wear brassards with the Francophone "PM", or Police Militaire, rather than the English language "MP" or Military Police. The civil police do look to be Belgian or French, as do the motorcycle combination riders.
An altogether curious photo, thank you for posting it,
Kerry.

Thank you Kerryboo and Markus. Luxembourg... there's a thought. It is odd isn't it? The non British outriders do look French, the kepis are ... well... debatable. Thank you for the car ident, that might provide a clue. At the back, to the immediate left of the doorway there are three military types and what looks to be a policeman with an oddly British -ish looking helmet, that might provide a clue as well. After another hunt I think you're probably correct Markus, the police British style helmet and kepis and the PM brassards are correct for Luxembourg. Now to find a high level British visit just pre WWII.

About the previous interesting picture of
Kepis, bikes and brits... why pre ww2?
Churchill visited Luxembourg post ww2
and looking a bit closer it is a rather
"big" man wearing the top hat on the back seat.
I found this site and I think some of the images are from the same occasion.
