Hi,

I once met a guy from Mt. Isa in Queensland who had found one of these WOT1 airfield crash tenders, reckoned it had been left behind on a wartime airfield up that way. There is another which is restored with a flat tray body near Sydney and it was for sale, open cab same as yours.

Regards Richard

The guy who told me about it, in the late 1990's was called Herb F, not sure if he owned it at the time, its a small world!

(just noticed letters HF painted on the side, so answered my own question!)

Here is a photo of the WOT1, ex-crash tender from near Sydney, it was for sale.

Yes Herb was the one who gave it to us. The one in Sydney we have driven and know the person who owns it now. Its still in Sydney.

We have a WOT 1 with a radio body at the museum in Adelaide. It came from Malta.
