You can see from the pics, that as a civvy MOD driver, we were not held to the same dress code as the military!

    Apologies for the late reply David, great to see the militants back then 👍🏻

    From the BBC News webpages.
    This item about an Amphibious Car event on the Thames.
    Focused mainly on the Amphicars but a few obvious ex Military vehicles in the background and a DUKW pottering around.

    Any opinions are mine alone and not yours, unless you want them on your head.
