Hi I've came across a Green/white reversible roll mat. in good condition bought it for £2 from a furniture shop. Identical in design to the well known Brit version same thickness and feel, same brass grommits, the same green cotton feeling fabric tape you tie in a bow when the mat is stored. It's possibly 2 thinner (olive/white)mats joined (welded rather than glued) during factory construction. there does not seem to be any sort of coating. Being reversible it can be stored rolled olive out or white side out to provide snow camo, The simple fact it has White on one side suggests a temperate if not Northern european user. I've never seen another one, I've Tried to research it, tried Google, but can't find anything about it, I don't even know if it's Brit, US, or foreign issue? Sadly I can't find any markings on it at all (apart from the users scrawled name in marker pen), and I have no idea how old it is, it could well be decades old and there is very little wear on it. My first thought was that it might be something to do with the "Royal Marine Arctic warfare Cadre" but I've nothing to back it up. Is it possible it's another rare trial piece of kit? I'll do a photo in the morning.
Good day, I thought I would share this project with you. After loosing the possible purchase of another special vehicle I re connected with Mike Calnan and arranged t go visit him for a reconnaissance visit ad confirmation of a possible deal. A week later, armed with a wedge of cash and equipped with a rental trailer and a rental small excavator and a willing accomplice we arrived for the recovery. The CL70 is made up of a front and rear car and were stored on the ground separated. With some gentle persuasion a pair was dragged out of the tall grass storage. Mike also generously allowed us t remove a second front car for parts as neither was complete and it will be easier to compare the two side by side and do the work in the warm and dry.. The excavator proved to be the perfect tool for the job and blended subtlety and power a deft control all in one. As we had an extra piece, we made a mad dash to a local shop to put the first piece on the back of the truck deck so we would still hae enough space to get everything home in one trip. Back at Mike's place we loaded the other two pieces and the spare chassis frame.
