S&D he drove. He believes it was the one of the last produced. “We

December issue of 'Museum Musings' the Newsletter of the Motor Museum
of Western Australia features their new display of the restored 1925 SD
Freighter. It includes a photo of the vehicle as it is now, and when

spent quite a few hours in January creating a new section on the
website entitled ‘Vehicle Types’. Most of the memories of D vehicles
remain only in the form of photographs which only rarely come with
captions. With the growth of the Facebook Group it has become necessary
to try to give details about these photos. With the help of the Group
from Facebook I have put together a guide on how to arrive at a
description for a photo. I’m sure there’s a lot that could or should be
added, and I’d welcome any comments. You’ll find the guide at Vehicle
Types. You'll find the page here:- Types.html
