The captured Fiat spent its post war life on a farm in Gippsland . It still  had the original bodywork in the 1950's.  Two of these captured Fiats were taken up to New Guinea , so the owner says.

Hi Mike,

The owner told me he has both of them, captured in North Africa, brought to Australia then they went to New Guinea. I think he said one was used as a recovery vehicle in NG. Fascinating history.
