Austin K2 Ambulance first aid pannier.

Recommended Posts

Bit of a long shot, does anyone know the type of RAMC wicker pannier that was supplied with the Austin K2 Ambulance?  I have seen a picture on the net of the ambulance bodies being fitted and one of the workers is stood on the pannier but can I find it again!!!!!  regards, Tim

Never seen or heard of such a thing that was supplied with the K2Y,  but very happy to learn.

I saw a post on a Great War forum about the type of pannier in ambulances (horse drawn), and having seen the photo of the production line in WW2 I assumed the practice continued.  I remember talking to a K2 owner some years ago who had a list of equipment the K2 came with, leg splint etc but he seemed reluctant to pass it on.

Panniers, Wicker . were definitley WW2 issue.  So as the amulances were normally attached to a hospital, I suppose if the hospital was moving the vehicles were used to move them. I know the full set includes a Dental Pannier.

Thanks for the imput guys, there is a good site by some airbourne chaps with lots of photos of complete panniers and the different types, my thought is it's a Field Medical pannier. If I can find the photo I'll post it. Cheers Tim
