  3. Thanks all. So £5 well spent then?
  4. Bought this today and have no idea what it is other than its an electric motor of Military origin. Somebody has gone to the trouble of mounting it on a bit of Oak!! Any ideas anyone?
  5. Hi Dave, yes I did, I used Speedy Cables as suggested. Took about 6 weeks but very impressed with their work and fairly reasonable prices.
  6. Thanks but only really need it for my trip to Arnhem next month.
  7. Full Zip version size 3 or 4. Anyone got one they want to sell? Thanks Richard
  8. Anyone on here know Mike? I need to contact him but the email address and mobile seem to be out of date. Thanks Richard
  9. Hi all, I need some info on likely details that would be found on a wartime British oil barrel? I have a 40 gal, painted black for my REME display and want to add some stencils. Appreciate any help. Thanks Richard
  10. Thanks Diana, exactly what I was looking for. I've contacted them and will be sending my Speedo's for evaluation. Thanks again. Richard
  11. Anyone know who does these in the UK please? Thanks Richard
  12. Looking for an original pair of British 3rd division sleeve patches. Thanks.
  13. Any Jeep distributors out there available for sale please? Thanks Richard
  14. Well there's no argueing with that!! Fantastic info....thanks very much.
  15. Recent purchase, may or may not be of military origin? Plates reads STORAGE BOX PATT 1197 FOR MK XI TELEPHONE HANDSET. Cant find anything whatsoever about it on the net. Thanks.
  16. As far as the Divisional sign is concerned, looking at various photos it seems if there was a regulation as far as what side of the vehicle it was displayed, it was not always followed. I suppose with this, and where or where not to have the Allied stars was not the most important concern at the time hence why so may variations. What about the American "Ohio" aerial mount. Any British jeeps seen with this still in place. I've not come across any so far. Cheers Richard
  17. Ok, based on your excellent info Chris i'm proposing the following. One question, would it still be correct to have the Allied star in the positions shown front and rear?
  18. Here's another 3rd Div photograph on a Priest. The caption refer's to D-Day.
  19. Knocked this up this morning. Does it look correct?
  20. Chris, Is the circle a thin or thick line? Sorry for all the questions!! Cheers Richard
  21. Hi Chris, Fantastic reply....thank you. I found this image on Google. Would this be correct?
  22. Hi, I need some assistance with correct markings for a vehicle serving with 1st Battalion Suffolk (part of 8th Infantry Brigade). I found the unit insignia (Red castle on blue square background) but what else? Thanks Richard
  23. Thanks all for your responses. My plan is to use an A frame bolted to the Jeep. It not an original Jeep one but one from a 1960's Bedford recovery truck.
