  1. Land rover 109 CL possible role

    Yes Richard you are correct I have misread the b card and it does say(RE diving) cant belive I have been misreading it. Glad I posted it under I may be stupid.
  2. Hi Everyone I would like some advice please on my 109 CL as to identifing other roles it may have played in its army life. The b card has it at the RE driving ESTB RSME 10 years service but I was wondering if it could have been used for bomb disposal or similar role as I has some parts that would relate to having alternating horns (has 3 horns) and maybe a flashing beacon. It has sliding side windows in the rear panels and looks like it may have had shelving. I understand that these could have been added buy any of its 9 civilian owners but I would be interested in knowing if they are military specification parts. I would be greatful for any advice as I would like to restore to its military role. Thanks in advance
  3. Thanks for your advice very helpful.

    Hi I have been a member of this forum for a few years but have not introduced myself. I live in Plymouth UK and own a Lwb series 3, a lightweight series 3 and an fv432. None of these vehicles are currently drivable so I have plenty of questions to ask to start getting them working and I will be grateful of any advice recieved.
  10. Hi Guys, Could someone please post a picture of how the front brake pipes should look and where they fit. It is for a 1984 series Lightweight. I cant fined any reference in the Haynes or military handbook so any guidance would be a great help. Thanks in advance.
