VE day, 8 May 1945 - Churchill leaving Buckingham Palace after balcony appearance with King etc, so probably well known footage. Can ID his convertible or the saloon behind according to preference.

The convertible is a Wolseley: http://www.glitters20.com/quotes/category/important-events.../page/70/ (scroll down). I'd suggest a 1935 Eighteen. The other is probably a Humber Pullman.

Revising ID to 14/56 Police Tourer due to this comment relating to another example CCE 858 which is officially a 14/56, although has modern tweaks to 18/80 spec

"One of just a handful of original tourers produced for police use, most of which Sir Winston Churchill used as transport and platforms for public speaking, CCE 858 is understood to be the only surviving example. Whilst many photographs exist of him with these cars, none have yet come to light which include this car's registration, however, it is extremely likely that CCE 858 would have played a role in transporting him at some point."
