From Lost Newcastle member, Chris Watsford:

My grandfather Sgt Bill McKie performing escort duties (then Cst) for Governor Northcott (walking off gangplank) at Newcastle. This was taken on 12/9/1947 and the arrival of the Governor was to coincide with the landing of Lieutenant Shortland at the mouth of the Hunter River 150 years before.
