  1. A small number of Landrover 'Wolf' Ambulances were converted into 130 Double Cab Pick Ups with soft tops to the cab and sent out to the British Army Training Unit in Kenya. Dispatched from the UK in commercial white paint and, as we can see, were repainted with a local camouflage scheme in Kenya. Project HEBE saw DSG Colchester convert additional Landrover 'Wolf' Ambulances into 130 Double Cab Pick Ups with hard tops to the cab for British Army units, painted in NATO green. 'HEBE' is not an abbreviation but was named after the Greek goddess for youth, rebirthing these vehicles and giving them further useful service life.
  2. A quick search of the internet shows that the White Cross of a Green Background is now used as the symbol for 'First Aid' equipment because the UK agreed to comply with ISO 7010 in 2012; for all graphical safety signage. https://www.iso.org/standard/54432.html The European Union adopted it as EN ISO 7010 and the UK implemented it through BS EN ISO 7010, replacing the previous regulation BS 5499. I'm no lawyer but I guess that is why everyone in the UK has to use the new symbols.
  3. Having a clear out and found a small quantity of plastic 'zip' ties for attaching foliage squares to camouflage nets: - 32x New, Sand for desert camouflage nets. - 3x New, Black for woodland camouflage nets. - 14x Used (ie bent), Black for woodland camouflage nets. Believe they are British Army issue from 1990s and need to go to somebody who can use them. PM me.
  4. Just the vehicle for getting around and the island life. I wonder what condition it is in after all that salt in the Scottish sea air?!
  5. The leading energy behind Operation Nightingale is Dr Diarmaid Walshe (serving in the Royal Army Medical Corps) who is a Project Manager within the Defence Archeological Group, also working closely with the Wessex Archeology. LinkedIn: https://uk.linkedin.com/in/diarmaid-walshe-19b92918 I have his current work contact details. PM me. I believe the 'Richard' who is mentioned is Richard Osgood, Senior Historic Adviser to the MOD's Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO). LinkedIn: https://uk.linkedin.com/in/richard-osgood-492b9552 Dare say we can track Richard down if needed.
