  1. Thanks for posting that John. What a super photo and piece of history. I am pleased that you enjoyed this thread. Here is another one of NZ forces entering Cologne with Dennis
  2. That's it. Thanks Alan. Made less than $10,000. Seems quite reasonable. Lots of other interesting stuff in the auction as well. All went for very little.
  3. I think that it was in Berkshire. Are you seriously interested in it?
  4. I think this is an AEC K Type. What do you think.
  5. That is amazing. Where on earth did you find something like that? Really wonderful book. I do like the term Kriegministerien Subventioniertes System which really supports that it is the same model.
  6. Super photos. Thanks for posting them. Is the upside down Peerless in Salonika? Background looks more European. I hope the driver survived that.
  7. Nash Quad. Apart from a seized engine it looked just about all there. Now sold.
  8. Only FWD's supplied to the WD had them. Ours served with the AEF and they transported them across themselves.
  9. Morgys FWD has the holes in the same place but the rivets are still in place so it is a bit hard to make out and the Duxford FWD has the same holes too.
  10. I managed to find another example of these super badges. The question is were these ever fitted to the Peerless? If so, should we fit it, or is it too precious, easily stolen and therefore make a nice addition to the wall of badges. Or if they were only ever fitted to FWD's should I do as Morgy suggests and give it to him for his FWD?
  11. At some stage Gaston Williams and Wigmore were asked to stop putting this name plate and revert to just Peerless. Instead, on the FWD they added a very nice enamel disc which shows the importers name which they mount on the inside of the scuttle as can be seen on the Banfield FWD. The holes match up exactly with Morgys FWD which I think was 1918 so I presume all ex WD FWD's would have this badge?
  12. As I mentioned on the first page the UK importers of Peerless and FWD was the American company of Gaston Williams and Wigmore. They adapted the name plate to show their name as can be see on the Bovington Tank Museum Peerless and these two photos of a Peerless and an FWD (although they are a bit tricky to make out).
