  1. Hello forum! My Hillman Mk2 has got a modern battery that needs replacement. According to the parts manual it originally was fitted with a "L-WD-2" , or a "L-WD-4" or a "BNW7/9A" battery. The Hillman has got a 1Volts, negative ground system. My question : Has anybody got photo's / drawings and measurements of these batteries ? With the photo's and measurements I can go and search for a modern batterie that looks as good as possible. Anyone has a link to a "vintage repro" battery seller? Thanks in advance !
  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. Hello forum! I'm Frederik Loggen from the Netherlands. I'm a keen collector of WW2 militaria for over 25 years, mainly ww2 militaria from the commonwealth. In the collection I've specialised in ww2 rations, tabacco and female commonwealth services uniforms (like WAAF, ATS, WRNS, CWAC, etc.). Some people will know as "Naaficook". I own for over 13 years a 1941 Hillman Utility Mk2a and a Mk5 bicycle. Some years ago I was lucky to find a neglected Mk2 Daimler Dingo in the UK and I've started restoring it this year. The Dingo has been used as a safety-car in the 1960/'70s on the Coventry Bee's speedwaytrack, hence the currently yellow and black striping on it. Unfortunally due to lack of maintenance is suffered some problems in the 70's and was put aside to be "fixed"......what never happenend until today. It suffered severly from storage outside (rotten instruments, floorboards and bins) and a vandalised interior as the rotating commanders seat and some hatchhandles are completely gone! Luckely the hull, engine and chassies are in good condition and dismanteling is in full process and will be completed within a few weeks. I will need lots of help in the future, I will keep you all informed and will post photo's in the future. Happy motoring too you all ! Frederik Loggen (a.k.a. Naaficook)
