FMW company was formed around 1970, so very doubtful it would have been used in WW2.

The HM Dockyard at Chatham had closed before the Gulf War, so he probably meant the Falklands War !

It was the little Mercury Tractor that was used in WW2. A friend of mine has one. Delightful to drive as the acelerator is in the middle of the pedals. Caused me a few frights over the years.
