post war sales catalogues

Recommended Posts

I dont suppose anyone has any disposal catalogues for British military small arms sold off after the Great War or WW2?

 

Regards

in many years of collecting sales catalogues l have to say l have never come across any on that subject l suspect that any surplus weapons went foreign governments to reequip there armies

l have looked for a catalogue for this sale and its one that l do not have but the last entry is interesting in the fact

it shows which unit held it before it was sent for disposal

hi

I recently joined in the hope of finding more information out about the history of my Series 1 land rover.

through my research we think it may have been sold at ruddington. I see this thread is all about the sales at ruddington

the land rover RGX654 chassis number 111700948 belonged to the Ministry of supply and was we believe a fire tender at Royal Navy armament depot Dalbeattie in Scotland, this site closed in 1960 and I think the land rover may have been sold possibly in 1964 as this is the date the DVLA have the earliest record of.

 

do you have any sales catalogues for 1964 for sales at ruddington that may have the details of the sale of RGX654?

if so I would be interested in any info if it would be possible to check ?

 

thank you

S

Thanks for your help and time

The time between 1956 and 1971 for this vehicle is being very hard to find

I have its whereabouts since 1971.

Hopefully I will get there at somepoint

Cheers

Thank you very much! That is very interesting. I'm looking for post 1948 renumberd vehicles too, like the R series(RA-RH), Y series(YA-YZ), X series(XA-X?) and Z series(ZA-Z?). I'm grateful for every page I can get.

Hello Big_S

These were at a Ministry of Supply sale at Elstow in April 1950, are they the sort of thing you are after?
