  1. As I have been restoring MV for a long time all WW 11. And some rare ones .I am about half way restoring a 1950 series’1 Land Rover . Witch is more of a challenge than some of the WW11 trucks . I hope to take it to any show as it still part of our history of transport
  2. Back in 1979 we went to NORMANDY in our Albion CX 22 with a group from DUXFORD . I was thinking of taking it back for the 2019 tour. But after thinking it was to slow . To wide and I was older than than the ALBION . So I decided to take the INTERNATIONAL M-2-4. witch is much more at home on the wrong side of the road.and much faster an can keep up any convoy. As the ALBION would get would be left a long way back . Their where lots of changes in 40 years . But ARROMANCHES BEACH at 6am on 6 June just like I rember 40 years & the parade through BAYEUK was much larger and their lots more people There are a few pictures of both Normandy tours We did have a problem on the way to Portsmouth we blew a core plug luckily we had a spare mended it on the side of the A3 and made a temporary fix with a web of wood against the dynamo this got us to the ferry at Portsmouth and to Port en Bessie In the morning after taking the dynamo off the truck we were able to fix the core plug in position correctly I would like to Thank all those who helped especially Gavin Copland from Jeep parts for TheLoan of his large hammer and his last tube of Hematite We Able to travel around Normandy after the fix and get home without any further trouble and covered 580 miles in total Tony corbin
  3. Dave Parker Colin Bent. My self. Brought the Albion in 1974. Sad that Colin is no longer with us . Dave still has the Constructor T CORBIN
  4. Hasn’t been to any events for a number of years . The drivers are older than the truck . It’s not very friendly to other road users at 23mph & close to 9 ft wide .It has covered about 16000 miles. In presavation. We had booked in in for Normandy in June but chanced our planes and now taking our International M-2-4. Instead. T CORBIN
  5. We have had the CX 22 for 44 years .And lives at DUXFORD . As did the scammer back in 1979 .When we all went to NORMANDY. ALBION CX 22 Leyand Hippo Scammel poiner. If you can find children’s swing you can get the spare wheel of the top of the truck & back . Camp site at St Mary’s Giles. The first time 3 large MVs went on tour. Not the last for the Albion T CORBIN
  6. When we acquire our CX 22 back in 1970s it had on spare wheel .And was told that heavy artiliry tractors did not carry one.Not shore about scammer pioneer. We have one fixed to the back of the crew bulked now. T Corbin
  7. When I had my m-2-4 & trailer inspected by the DLVA for tax class .i was told I could not carry any bombs on the trailer as it was loaded .And would require HGV road tax. & plating . But if the bombs where fixed (bolted or welded ). It then became part of the trailer for desplay & not a load. Before you carry an think on your GMC . Do some homework on what you can carry leagley T CORBIN
