Taken at the same time and place, The Police Depot in Sydney in 1947, as the photo of my father in my In the Force post is this snap of another young Police Officer, Keith McDean. Perhaps the photo is in Dad's collection because Keith joined the force at the same time as Dad in 1947.
I can only find mention of one Keith McDean in Australia on Ancestry. I wonder if this is Keith William McDean?
Hopefully one day this post will reach one of Keith's descendants.
