Hi All, looking for pointers on whatever mods\configs were made to the WSC when in British use, especially for NW Europe in 1944. Have had a look around the forum and can't find anything definitive? Ideally, if anyone's got a pointer to a book, or file at the National Archives etc. which covers this topic I'd be most interested to hear of it. I can see from period pics that in some instances the skate rail was removed completely, Pip Roberts Command version of the WSC being a good example. Incidentally does anyone know the full Census number for Roberts WSC, from the famous pic it looks to be Z 495533? Anyone confirm or deny? Also, what radios other than the WS 19 would Roberts have had in the back of his WSC. The following bit of film shows several attennae...and a spare wheel on the back. Any ideas? https://fa9e73e865f29caec390-2a80cf171f3b8b56b3a148be08287271.ssl.cf3.rackcdn.com/0x060A2B340101010201010F1213000000E51D7F0E9FEBE2390000B4B52F563190.mp4 Also, any info on the WSC in RE use? I think they also used them in the Recce / Radio role and I have a note from the RE office who scouted the Bailey bridge build for Putanges in 1944. His diary notes that he took two WSC's with him and left one on the hill outside of town as his rear radio link. Anyone aware of anything specific about RE configurations of the WSC?
Hello Everyone, I am in need of help in finding a vehicle if possible. I am working on a low budget BBC production on the First World War, part of the Centenary next year. It is a documentary drama, and as part of the TV programme we require a First World War British Army Truck. I am struggling to find an original or replica that is in existence. Does anyone know of someone that has one? I would appreciate any help that you could give me. Many thanks Luke
hi Here are three photo's which will be of interest to Model T enthusiasts. They are from the Library of Congress website. The first one which is at the Jaffa Gate in Jerusalem is pretty good resolution. All photo's have the LOC link so you can view and download the original . Thankyou for taking the time to look . Any information is welcome. DesertBlooms88
