Nope, but I see he's wearing the "traditional" Belstaff jacket the a lot of Aussie BM riders wore around that time.

Is that a Western Australian Plate on the bike with the Cravens?

Should have stayed in third. I had one of those (1954 R25/3) and it was distinctly faster in third than in fourth.
It couldn't pull the gearing in top gear so top speed was around 60 in third and 55 in fourth.
