Hi, I am an automotive journalist. I was editor of The Engineer weekly news magazine from 1969 to 1980 before starting my own newsletter business...Auto Industry Newsletter. For many years I took a great interest in fighting vehicles, most notably battle tanks. Also I have a deep interest in gas turbine engines for vehicles and which I have studied for many years even though they have not come to pass. My question...Does anyone know anything about Cohendet military trucks circa 1908 or thereabouts. I know they existed but have been able to find out very little about them. I think they had a front-mounted underfloor engine. Does anyone know if there is a Cohedet vehicle in the UK, who owns it so that I can discover more about these vehicles which to me seem most elusive Tankchief
Herne23Hunter posted a topic in Introductions & WelcomesHello 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
