  1. Have enjoyed the process and the problem solving - the time has passed so quickly... "...Quite a promising start to the project." ... January 2015.
  2. I concur. Really interesting find. Go for it!!!
  3. Top pic... any takers for early NAG - AEG - Schneider? Stumped!
  4. Pic is a bit fuzzy at my end... could it be: Halley, Halford, Lacre or Vulcan?
  5. A new book has been published here in Melbourne. Called "Our Forgotten Volunteers" by Bojan Pajic. The book follows the stories of Australians and New Zealanders who served on the Salonika/Balkan Front. Many were medical staff...
  6. Ahhh... I can smell the grease from here.
  7. That is an impressive barn find. Do you happen to know whether there are many of these in existence?
  8. I took a look at a photo of the Yeovil unit just now. Is this a mock-up with the odd original part?
  9. Thanks for posting the war office disposals list... another part of the Leyland puzzle exposed.

    How likely is it that this is the original engine?

    A useful book is: AEC Vehicles Origins to 1929 - by Brian Thackray.
  12. The Dennis is very bright 'red' in colour. Is this shade original? Are you likely to get booked for speeding by every passing patrol car? Robert
  13. Impressive unit. How did it survive the ravages of time...
  14. Regarding Leylands... the earliest Leyland parts and drawings registers show that vehicles were built specifically to customer request, said vehicles were all different: chassis length, width... some joggled some not; diffs and axles; motor; and wheels! Every new and redesigned part was logged. Gradually, beginning with the war office subsidy scheme, vehicles began to look similar, but even then modifications occurred along the way. In recent times the leyland Society has attempted to sort the pre-subsidy scheme Leylands into groups. No easy task! One reason I find ID'ing vehicles/parts so interesting...
  15. AEC. I have a couple of Vulcan fronts which are very similar...
