Well, that has been an interesting sleuthing exercise.......
Regarding this photo:
Of the 8 Douglas DC-4s that served with TAA we can eliminate VH-TAE, TAF & TAG which were delivered 64-65 as freighters. The first VH-TAC was sold in 1948 which leaves VH-TAA, TAB, TAC (#2) and TAD. TAD was sold in 1959 and VH-TAA, TAB & TAC (#2) were converted to freighters in 59/60.
The DC4 in the photo hasn't had the freighter conversion as there is no internal liner to protect the windows.
So, my guess the photo was taken circa 1958, which allowing for shipping time from Banner Lane to Australia, makes the tractor serial number somewhere between 1001 and 79552! :lol:
The green and white roundel on the left rear guard indicates that an approved spark arrestor is fitted, although why they would leave the upswept exhaust around aircraft is beyond belief.
