  1. It is not green and has no wheels, but an unusual item in mint unused condition I found going through my kit today. ARP Gas Mask wipes to give clear vision with the rear Brylcreem add priced at 1/- shilling, 2" x 1.5" size looks like a box of matches from the outside. It may have been issued with my gas mask in 1943. "A.R.P Clear View" are the only names on the item, does anyone have more history on these items? Regards Mick

    Going Electric

    An interesting conversion of a Landrover to run on electric from down under. www.goingbush.com/ptev.html. I would prefer the hydrogen cell to keep it more original.

  4. British Army Landrovers do not need reversing lights. We not retreat.
  5. Does anyone have a good use for an air field foam extinguisher, needing some TLC. It would be a shame for the scrap-man to be the new owner. Items are at TN6 Sussex area. As you can see my location is shown as the Isle of Man and I am in and out of the uk whilst I clear my barns of kit. Any interest contact me on tumbledown.farm@yahoo.com and we can arrange collection when I am in the uk. Regards Mick

  7. Hi Folks My defence standards disc has stopped working, anyone got the current specifcation for the following oils please. M160 in 1942 operators manual as engine, gearbox, fluid flywheel and air filter, M220 (special) transfer box Regards Mick
  8. Further to the MOT debate on Bedford MK MJ vehicles. Let take my MJ for an example, which is still as issued by MOD after 34years and went to a new home yesterday, purchased by the first viewer at asking price. Vehicle data. Bedford MJP, 29 KA 26 with tail lift ex RAF, date into service 14.9.1983, date cast 1.9.1995 registered with DVLA on a "Y" plate no modifcations to vehicle and tax as a Private HGV. RoadTaxed application was made last week with the DVLA who stated it DID NOT NEED AN MOT and acepted the application. If you can get the index number and eleven digit V5c code, go on line, the system will state if a vehicle requires an MOT. Hope this helps. Mick
  9. We found when the Daf was introduced into our MT units fleet it was not as good as the MJ. The MJ is better than the MK as the turbo makes quite a difference to performance. As far as off road driving with bar grip tyre it is very good, on road the steering is lets say a more manly type of driving as opposed to the later road tyres introduced by the MOD, which makes a considerable difference, like having power steering but not so good off road. Mine is up for sale due to injury which is a sad day as she is great to drive. I see you are a single man again, hope the dust has settled without to many permanent injuries. When asked if I am married my normal reply is "No my vehicles shut up when I turn them off" Enjoy you freedom. Regards Mick

  12. Thank you Gents a great help.
  13. On E-Bay is listed a "B"(84-85) Reg MJ shown as MOT exempt. My MJ "Y" (82-83) plate, full canvass and TCV seats + tail lift was subject to a full HGV test under the old regulations before I barn stored her some years ago. Before the new regulations came out I under stood that the rear springs needed down grading to come under the 7.5 ton limit. Advice please folks, can I run my MJ (PLG) as MOT exempt without down grading the springs? Cheers Mick
  14. Has Withams lost the MOD contract, any one know the current situation.
  15. Do you mean an MT350?. For both the MT500 and 350 I had Barbour jacket and trousers over 95 pattern kit with standard infantry boots. I returned the trousers to Barbour to have brasses fitted to stop them skidding down whilst riding.
