                              This shot is from the Civil Aviation Historical Society (CAHS) collection.  This ancient machine
                              was registered at the time to the Pratt Brother's Geelong Air Service.      Research provided by
                              Kevin OReilly of Nhill, Victoria indicates that the automobile was Charlie Pratt's 1924 Oldsmobile
                              Tourer.   Kevin, who provided the shot below, captioned as having been taken at Carisbrook
                              Camp, near Maryborough in 1926, suggests that the DH6 is probably also G-AUEA,.
