  1. hi. I wonder if i could have an opinion on this shot. Here is a photo from 1930's showing British Troops in Palestine. I am not sure if its Black Watch though... There are quite a few photo's like this , all showing Hackles in helmet and flashes in socks. Some also have soldiers with the bonnet Tam o Shanter so i assume they are Scots but otherwise how can it be decided which is which?

  2. Thanks for the website for 32020... absolutely fascinating to see the build recreation photo's. I see that 32020 was donated from the " Groton school in Massachusetts " as it states in the text. I was hoping that i might see some original shots of it. Maybe in the archives for the American Field Service as he researched it there. Thanks for highlighting the site Just found another site that this person has for the same vehicle [h=1]Ambulance 255 Project Log[/h]http://www.ambulance255.org/project.htm DesertBlooms88

  15. Thankyou for your reply. Its like a whole new picture with some many details being highlighted. With regards to the date i am afraid i can only state 1930's. Incidentally here are another two photo's which i believe are associated with the first image. DesertBlooms88
