RAF Vehicle Identity Required

Recommended Posts

If I remember correctly there was a post on here to identify a railway engine, a sign on there I think read 40 ASP.

Well remembered, John! I searched for 'railway' and found the post. It does indeed look like a signpost directing traffic to 40 ASP.

When my father transfered from the Army desert salvage, to the RAF air sea rescue. They did not have many spares, he knew where some Napier Lion engines were buried in the desert and they went and dug them up.Using them in the boats.  It could have been an area used and vacated by 40 ASP. I also remember him saying he had watched an amunition dump being blown up to deny the stocks to the enemy, He watched the shock wave travel accross the desert floor. I have got singed eybrows just watching the video about Hot Forging, working in those conditiond day after day.
