  1. More here scroll down to map.--https://www.military-airshows.co.uk/press19/daks-over-normandy-duxford.htm Not sure what the two lines are hope they are going down the middle, right over our heads at Great Horkesley, not easy to understand!
  2. Never seen or heard of such a thing that was supplied with the K2Y, but very happy to learn.
  3. My comment was in no way a criticism of the above restoration, just an observation, It remains a tough call to do it in the way it was done back in the day.
  4. This would have come of the production line Green, when camouflage paint was added, would that be applied to the inside of the cab, front axle etc, I think not, All K2Y Ambulances were green, and if painted sand, surely only surfaces visible to the enemy would receive attention, A big problem now when restoring such a vehicle is, you would to have to do the unthinkable and finish in green and then RUSH a coat of required camouflage colour, either brush or spray, no masking (perhaps a bit of card and a well painted hand if blowing it on) and that its. That's NOT something anyone could to bring themselves to do, so I guess TOTAL authenticity will never again be seen. Well that's the way I see it. I in my time had to decide if having finished a vehicle in Green, I had the guts to get a spray gun out a blast Sand on the outside and bits you can see. Sadly I could not have lived with that.
  5. Superb, although I did feel for you on the handle.
