  1. Came across this video today. Covers a range of Heritage vehicles and equipment from Tiger Moths to Steam Locos and everything in between and yes there are some military vehicles but none of the usual types you normaly see. Too long to pick out individual clips just skip through yourself or watch the lot. https://www.national-preservation.com/threads/sandstone-2019.1417211/#post-2534599
  2. As a further comment on wearing of kit. Can somebody educate actors / costume fitters on how to wear a beret.
  3. By Axle flood paint do you mean the white painted area? That to me is more like to be for a rear convoy light to light up. So it can be seen by a following driver but not by anyone else.

    Probably the wrong thread but could not spot a Current Military News type section. It seems the Army is moving out and heading East by all means possible. With this clip of the use of the Ludgershall branch for loading. There is also the web page giving a few more details. https://www.army.mod.uk/news-and-events/events/tractable/
  5. I was in 5 sqn at Iserlohn for my last 6 months service. Cannot recall any Ferrets, but do remember the Bedford MK's, Couple of CET's and some Stalwarts. I was in HQ troop from Jan 83 - Jul 83. How I hated the run up to the Bismark Turm, especially after being a planty in the UK. Outside the gate to the left was the beer shop and across the road was a Scnellie van. Jaeger Scnitzel, mit frites mit mayo, bitte. A mile down the road to the shops in Hagen.
  6. Just guessing. FH - Fire House? PH - Pump House?
  7. Small group of ex Military vehicles at Hebden Bridge vintage vehicle rally over the weekend.3 Landies, A RB44 and a Jeep. More planned to booked on the sunday.
  8. This was going around a year or so back. http://www.armouredcarriers.com/uss-robin-hms-victorious
  9. During my time in the TA with 234 Fd Sqn RE at RAF Leeming we used to use Ellington Banks for Demolition Training which involved the use of Plastic explosive mainly PE4. However I cannot recall actual use on vehicles and there was also a size limit on the charges used on site.
  10. I heard that the engine was flooded.πŸ˜„πŸ˜„
  11. Am I right in thinking that when the Eager Beaver was conceived it was meant to comprise of standard mechanical parts from common vehicles? Possibly Bedford MKs or others.
  12. Why think small. Go for a Grand Slam instead.
