    New Landrover series 1 steering column?

    looks very much like an 80" steering box to me do the labels say if it is new or reconditioned should sell for a lot of money on e-bay

    Bedford MWR 1943

    Dont think you are too far out with your HT leads attached photo is the only one i have of an MWR engine i think it came from some photos pre D-day about water proofing although the parts book has the coil either mounted on the engine as you have it or mounted on the drivers side foot well depending on engine number .

    OGEL again

    This was mentioned in the last MVT Normandy tour up date but if read the above correctly there is an exmption regarding military vehicles over 50 years old used for historical activites on page 11 paragraph 3 which seams to cover France ,Belgium, and Germany but not the Netherlands of course everything may change again when brexit finally happens

    NEW Track grip tyres, British WW2

    if the tread pattern matches the attached scan i will take a set of five for my Bedford MWD restoration and would think there should be a lot of intrest from other early Bedford owners

    part four bulkhead repairs

    Thanks very much for your intrest , the Bedford MW seams to be the most popular of the war time 15cwt trucks with higher numbers makeing it into preservation but correctly restored aero screen MWD trucks are fairly scarce ,hopeful when finnished it will be around one of about twenty trucks left .
