Any idea what year the photo is from. Thank you in advance.

Most likely Spring 1977. Possibly during mid-tour break in May 1977. Fourth and fifth characters of a UK license plate at the time indicated the age of the vehicle.

So 1965 plus 12 = 1977.

No. That numbering system only started in 2001 and does not indicate the age of the vehicle - only when it was first registered. 

For this format of license plate - only used between 1963 and 1982 - the Final character indicates when vehicle was first registered for use on the road. (In the UK cars keep the same license plate forever - unless the owner has it changed). 

In this case the letter C. Which means the car was registered between January and December 1965. 

You can't tell when the photo was taken from the license plate.
