    Royal Naval Divison. 1914

    Many of the early armoured cars were simply armour plates attached to the chassisof a touring car. The Belgian Minerva, for example. A little more advanced, in that it had an armoured door to close the radiator off & a small shield for the gunner. http://www.landships.info/landships/car_articles.html?load=car_articles/Minerva.html
  3. Ooooops! Looks like some silly bugger thought Norway's in the tropics, or climate change has warmed it up!

    Caunter-camouflaged gem at the YWE

    Since there are Willy's Jeeps on there, for up to £25k, then I suppose it's not that much.

    Another DUKW accident

    40 deaths in 20 years in these things. Problem appears to be the canopy, when they sink, the passengers get caught up, lifejackets or not.
