  8. Looks the same....... also looked at one point it got a gutful of mud down the drivers hatch. Nice mess to clean up
  9. I wonder if they put the wood across the roof to cool the cabs down. To this day in Malaysia you can still see trucks they've ripped the roofs off and put wooden ones on.
  10. The Australian equivalent RAEME is colloquially refereed to as Royal Australian Easy Money Earners I went from RAA to RAEME and there was a distinct difference :-D Great pictures, thanks for sharing

  14. good to hear it doesn't stink anymore we did a mates car with it over 20 years ago and had to drive with the windows down
  15. What is " fish oil " and what does it do please? Not heard of it before. Same purpose as Waxoyl........I tend to think Waxoyl is better so will be an interesting discussion. You coat the inside of everything with fish oil which retards rust.......yes it stinks Maybe Waxoyl is less effective here due to the heat... looking forward to see the pros and cons of each

  17. I met one of those ex free Polish veterans on my first international trip in 1994. We had an interpreter on a course called 'Stan' with an impeccable UK accent. He had fought in Poland and then with the free Polish Forces in the UK. As you said after the war he had a new life in the UK after the war, family etc. But he went back to Poland when his mother was dying. Once in they would not let him exit back to the UK. As you could imagine he had bitter memories of the Soviet era.
