Front winch on a Land Rover

Question

I have just seen a Land Rover supposed to be ex MoD with a front winch on it, I have never seen one before on any picture.

Being curious what would you look for to ensure winch is in good condition, does the cable need to be tested from time to time?

What would you look for on the attachments to the bumper?

The Mayflower winch required a different bumper. The original bumper together with the bumperettes were removed & returned to stores. The replacement was Bar, bumper, heavy duty Part No. 390-A1, which was contained in the modification kit Winch assembly 4000lb LV7/RU 2590-99-820-2894.
