    Going Electric

    An interesting conversion of a Landrover to run on electric from down under. www.goingbush.com/ptev.html. I would prefer the hydrogen cell to keep it more original.
  2. Having restored 1944 Airborne 10cwt No1 Mk2 Trailer and an 1944 10cwt Lightweight Water Bowser (posted photos previously on HMVF), I've now got a new project. Have been lucky to find a 1944 Lightweight Electrical Repair trailer (thanks Richard). I believe it is one of the trailers developed by the REME section of the Airborne Forces Development Centre based at Amesbury Abbey (Wilts) from 1943 in cooperation with the REME Central Workshops at Old Dalby (ref. Rob van Meel's British Airborne Jeeps). The trailer data plate shows it to be "Electrical Repair Trailer. No.1 Mk II. Cont. No. 23/7940" and WD Number: X6170936. It still has its 110v DC Bench Grinder and a 110v DC "Van Norman YW Valve Refacer", a large worklight and an Admiralty Pattern 1 Gallon Still (for distilling water for batteries!). It came its original canvas cover with "T-plate", but is missing the simple steel frame (on the to do list). I am guessing the old design of triangle warning plate is a post-war. It is missing the collapsible workbenches that slotted into the front...does anyone have any information on these? Size and method of construction? The two wooden cased 6v battery boxes are also missing. But I think it is an unusual survivor in very good conditon, I'll post a few photos below, but I am very interested to find any further informaton about these trailers, their equipment and use. It seems that this particular example only left the army in late 1970s/early 80's, possibly having been with a TA unit. I don't think the REME museum has one, althought they do have the very similar Lightweight Machinery Trailer. How many others survive? Thanks in anticipation John
  3. Thanks for accepting my registration! Should have joined this forum/group years ago! better late than never :-) Interests are: Military Vehicles, Military and Amateur radio and all that goes with these kind of hobbies! Currently own two ex military Defenders (one is FFR LHD and the other ex TA RHD) both fitted with various working Clansman equipment, one GS Lightweight in need of restoration plus one FFR Lightweight in the process of a ground up Build (Not REbuild!). PLUS !!! One AFV 439 which is about to be sold at auction !!! Details here: https://www.bidspotter.co.uk/en-gb/auction-catalogues/peacock-auctioneers/catalogue-id-whpav10388/lot-cca6139f-c412-4240-9018-a7b300d53590 I need to downsize !!! Thanks again for a very interesting and useful forum! Bill K.
  4. Hi. Just a short Intro, Name is Robin and the Location is just south of the Hogs Back. I have a Lightweight 1/2 Ton which I am delighted with especially now as it is crammed full of Clansman gear. 73s Robin GØGNE
  5. Hi I've been lurking for a while, but finally I'm putting my head above the parapet. I've been doing the shows for about 10 years with my FC101 Intercept, and recently this has been joined by a nice SIII Lightweight which gets regular use as the wife's allotment jalopy. I'm currently looking for a BDR Trailer (see Wanted ad) so please get in touch via PM if you can assist me with this. Many thanks John
