    2 Russian Amphibious APCs

    It looks as if the "sold price" is the "hammer price" plus the buyers premium but no VAT. I've come to this conclusion because if you divide the "sold price" by 1.1 the result is a round figure ending in £50, £100 or £1,000. Not done this to all the lots but enough to satisfy that myself that the results are consistent. Hammer price £8,000 Buyer premium £800 VAT on premium £160 VAT on APC £1,600 Total £10,560

    WS19-when introduced?

    The answer should be at one of these links. The Wireless-Set-No19 Group:- http://www.royalsignals.org.uk/ The Vintage & Military Amateur Radio Society:- http://www.vmars.org.uk/ The Royal Signals Museum:- https://www.royalsignalsmuseum.co.uk/

  18. The FH70 in the British army was called "Howitzer 155mm L121" Although, it has been out of service since 1999 (?) you could try a FOI request. Also, contact the Royal Artillery Museum Archive:- http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/a?_ref=400

    1962 Daimler Ferret at Coys

    Results not yet online and Coys are very slow, I'm still waiting to see the 1953 Willys Overland Jeep price from the March auction .
  22. Richard, Is the hub required if only the drum is cracked. I assume, that if this hub and brake drum is used on more than just the Arrows trailer the NSNs would be the same in the illustrated parts catalogue for each trailer. If I'm correct, it may make a replacement hub/drum easier to find if the Arrows drum is common to one or more other makes and/or sizes of trailer. Plan B - If, the drum is unobtainable, cast and machine a new drum or even a pair.

    Bedfor mw cab gutter

    As countersunk carriage bolts aren't listed, one possibility is that the bolts behind the gutter are tighten until the heads are flush with the face of the wood. Using a flat bit drill to make a shallow hole the size of the washer would give a flush head without damaging the surrounding wood.

    2 Russian Amphibious APCs

    More details on both APCs now on the auction site. No engine sizes but as in ArtistsRifle's post the BTR-80 is fitted with a 260bhp V8 turbo diesel engine. As they are from the MoD, both are subject to 20% VAT.
