    I remember when I was on my first posting R.E.M.E Attached to 26 Engineer Regt in Germany. These vehicles were in use with the regt for unloading pallets of mines, Field engineering equipment Etc.

    They even went out on Excercises with them!
    I recall being very UN-enviable when we always deployed in the field for three weeks at a time on the Annual Major Manouvers.
    Also always in november! Observing the drivers of these vehicles in a green waterproof jacket & Motorbike crash helmet.
    It was freezing & bad enough driving 432's & 434's! I felt sorry for those guys. It must have been bone chilling!
    Then I used to think, hey, if you cant take a joke, you shouldnt have joined!........

    Has anyone got an explanation of what happened here? Strangely one of the battery boxes appears to be empty. They don't seem to be in any hurry to right the vehicle. Is that bicycle wheel contraption something it was towing or did it get hit in the accident. (could it be a towed speed recorder?) It looks a bit like the E.B. is in four wheel steer. Not recommended for high speed running!

    And I can't make out the design of the exhaust tailpipe. Looks like a circular disc!

    I think it was a catchweight contest between the bike wheeled trolley, which lay hidden in the long grass in a derelict part of Arsenal East and the Beaver which came along rolled over it and lost on a TKO, possible the driver said some words starting with the letters from number plate

    and another. This EOD EB I assume is remote controlled by the operator at the end of the cable in the foreground, although he seems remarkably close?
