  1. Hello gents, I have a question regarding Bedford MWD vehicles in RAF service. Does anyone know when the RAF began painting their Bedford MWD's in RAF blue? Any information is much appreciated. Kind regards: Kent Karlsen
  2. Hi all, We just (this weekend) bought a Hillman Minx Saloon 1941 to restore and brought it from UK to Belgium. We would like it to be in original RAF-colors again ! While stripping the black paint (it was rebuild in 1948 into a cab) we found lettering on back doors. Still have to strip another part, but now I’m trying to do some research about RAF vehicle markings. Hard to find !!! The markings on the front right wing, was already made visible by the previous owners ... I have paint chips of the original RAF blue grey that was underneath the other paint layers, so the color is no problem. Right front wing marking: base color of wing is black H’24 with RAF roundel Type A diagonally below On the left back door: H + 2 or 3 digits we guess The right front door panel has been repaired earlier, so no more markings on it. The left front door panel, there is no marking either ... Quenstions: - What's the meaning of the number 24 and letter H’ ? Must been sqn numbers but wich one ... - What means black wings ?? Red wings are "Bombs Disposal" ... but black :wow: - Any help about vehicle markings would be fantastic !! Thanks a lot, Tina
  3. Please identify this vehicle

    Hello all, Found this photo of my late grandpa Alan Wormald spraying a truck at RAF Marham in 1948, a CMP truck of some sort? Not seen that body on one either-small workshop body perhaps? Also, anyone know what the 'G.587' refers to - building number? The text on the photo & below it reads; MAR.G.587 13-5-48// SPRAYING BAY IN USE RAF MARHAM 1948 ALAN Regards
  4. RAF Blue Landrover sought

    Hello folks, a serving RAF officer has contacted our MVT group. He is looking for our help to locate an RAF Blue Landrover. ‘My fiancé and I are looking for an RAF Blue Landrover for use as our wedding vehicle when we get married near Malmesbury, Wilts on 23 April this year. If anyone owns or knows of any such vehicle, we would be very grateful if you would get in touch.’ If anyone can help, this is a fantastic and very practical way to support our service personnel. You can PM me on this forum or contact Ian directly [ian.david.hall@gmail.com]. cheers, Jeremy
  5. Here's something of a rarity seen today in deepest Lincs amongst many other vehicles and trailers quitly rusting away. Original painted sign on dash read RAF/909703/VM
  6. Hello to all Recently joined and thought that I had made an introduction post but guess notQ I'm up in Harrogate, North Yorkshire and am the new owner of a 1941 GMC 353 Truck (Hard cab) She's in decent order and will look even better after a proper clean up and new paint job so she's ready for next years series of anniversary trips. She will be used during the season to help move around a 40's Big Band (the Echo 42 Big Band) http://www.echo42.co.uk - all RAF'ed up when they are on a 1940's event. If anyone has any information as to wether Jimmy's were used by the RAF on loan that would be great Cheers Paul
  7. Hello all - I'm a new owner of a 1941 GMC Jimmy truck and keen to learn... Looks like this group is a real knowledge base and look forward to interacting with all. I'm a trombone player in a 18 Pice Big Band - ECHO 42 and we play for a lot of 1940's themed weekends and events all over the UK. When we are on a 40's gig - we become a RAF Wing Command Band of the period dressed and sounding as such. So this new truck will be come part of our 40's show dressing if an outdoor event. SO Does anyone have any information on GMC truck being used on loan to the RCAF or RAF in wartime england? any help or pointers would be most welcome. cheers Paul
  8. If any camouflaged or olive green Unimog owners, ideally a 406 model, want a free air show in the Midlands, please pm me. The purpose is to represent an RAF Unimog that in its day was used as a tug for Harrier aircraft. This is a large public display that is inclusive of many RAF and Army elements including Harrier and Jaguar aircraft. A Unimog is the only missing part although I could also use some Bedford MK with tilts as the MoD has now disposed of them all. Sunday 9th June 2013 @ RAF Cosford. WV7 3EX
  9. Think this old girl is ex RAF. A bit like a short version of a Green Goddess, only not much in the way of visible firefighting equipment. Would love to know what it is, and what it may have served as. Thanks in anticipation GR
  10. Hello I'm a military vehicle enthusiast who is lucky enough to live near Witham SV and can regularly go and dream of owning a Bedford MK. Perhaps this love of military vehicles can be traced to my ancestors. Both grandad's drove trucks during the war. They never talked about this but i have found some pics recently and I wondered if anybody out there could help identify the vehicles. You can see the pics in this picasa album. One grandad served in Palestine with the RAF at the end of the war and my other was in the Hussars in what looks like North Africa. I particulalry like the convoy pic and the lead vehicle with the white wall tyres. You can see the pics in here. click here Thanks James
