REME quick tear down / assembly display Land Rovers

Question

Am I dreaming or do I recall from country fairs or maybe the Royal Tournament from days of old that there was a race between two teams and specially prepared Land Rovers that drove into the arena and then came apart into major sub assemblies in a few minutes and then back together and drove out again?

 

Can we put any images and recollections on this subject into the public domain?

I think started with jeeps and then moved to LR's. Used to feature at the Edinburgh Tatoo now and again.

 

Basically it was an update of that obstacle course with a 'chasm' they used to have two teams hauling dismantled field guns over.

I saw it at the LRO show in 2008, but just had a trawl through their videos and cant see it. There has to be video footage of it someplace

Spares bins ?? the bins are still there but no spares, the last LAD I was in had next to nothing not even a few spare nuts and bolts etc. All spares are for jobs in hand or ordered in when required.

 

Can't say what the district and base workshops have now but they were similar.

Seen it done with Grey Ferguson tractors, at Three Counties Show Ground. Plenty of videos on YouTube maybe a link to Landis and Jeeps.
