    Help in identifying mystery part

    Thank you all for the help in identifying the object. As I do not want the item, if anyone wants it, please PM me and I will send it to you. I would be grateful if you could forward a donation to this Forum (suggest £20).
  2. I have been given this item by a neighbour but I have no idea what it is. It has a NATO part number 6220-12-151-4418 and is made by Hella. It is also made of Rubber. Can anyone tell me what it is and what vehicle it might fit, please? Many thanks.

    Liberation of Rome, June 1944

    Is that sand paint or Dust? Rome was liberated in June 1944, a dry time of year.
  4. Try the REME Museum. They do have some of these stores books as I saw some while I was there, but I can't remember a bridging one. I strongly suggest you request a visit and search yourself and not just ask for help.

    Wheel clamp for sale

    The clamp will take a tyre up to 22 inches in diameter (I measured it top to bottom), so will take a normal 13 inch car wheel comfortably. The next Dallas Digout is tomorrow, Sunday 8th July.

    Fowler Traction Engines WW1

    I only have access to the record books I am processing, but if you have an engine number, write in to MERL (Museum of English Rural Life) in Reading and they can search the drawings. I know they have some drawings but I have not seen any. I will get you contact details for MERL as soon as I can, but might be a few days.
  14. I have been Volunteering at MERL in Reading, processing the records for Fowler Traction Engines. One detail that cropped up today was a Traction Engine supplied to the Ministry of Munitions during WW1. It was requested 21st Aug 1916 and issued 9th March 1918. What was interesting was the colour scheme - Black, picked out in Amber and lined in Red and Yellow. It had WD painted on the tank back and each motion cover. I have noticed other Fowler traction engines supplied to the Army and they are All painted Black, mostly with Red lining. Not one was painted Khaki.
