Some Land Rover identification help needed

Recommended Posts

Dear colleagues !

 

I should like to get some Your help in the visual identification of the following Land Rover versions:

 

- Land Rover Series 2A Mk8 Short Wheelbase;

- Land Rover 4x4 Four Stretcher Ambulance FV18005;

- Land Rover Series 2A Mk 9 4x4 ½ ton Long Wheelbase.

 

It will be good to see 1 or 2 images of general view of exact version of each vehicle, mentioned and highlighted above (or to get the links to such images). The Internet searches bring quite many pictures - but they all differ from each other, and because of this, I'm not sure in exact versions.

 

Thank You in advance.

If you want a comprehensive guide to the various types of leaf sprung Land Rovers (i.e. pre 90 and 100 models) used by British Military I'd recommend getting a copy of British Military Land Rovers by James Taylor and Geoff Fletcher, published by Tankograd. Its chapters deal with each Mark in turn and cover both standard general service and specialist vehicles. It also includes plenty of photographs.

Two more books actually just one but the second edition (softback) has a few differences , possibly best for you is the original hardback.

 

The Fighting Rovers by L. Geary , far from perfect but a additional aid.
