Air Publication 2515A "MT Vehicles Complete"

Recommended Posts

I recently had some time to spare at work, so I thought I'd run AP2515A Vol.III, Mechanical Transport Vehicles Complete, dated May 1946 through the scanner. It essentially lists all of the MT vehicles, trailers and associated bodies, in use with the RAF at the time. Interestingly, some of the chassis/complete vehicles have the contract numbers listed and for many of those the chassis number ranges covered by each contract are included.

Also included at the end is the first amendment list, from January 1947. 

If it's of interest, we also have the second edition of May '52 and the fifth edition from April '64 

Apologies if there is a better place to put this.

You had to go and pick the thicker of the two Clive!

I'll try and get it done over the next couple of weeks.

No.

They should all be listed in the appropriate AP1086, but I've yet to find one for that period.

Thanks very much for sharing those details. 522 'missing' Norton frame numbers can now be allocated to a contract and some light shone on others.  I too would be fascinated to see any earlier editions.

Interesting that the Austin K2 Ambulance is listed but with reference to Page 13 - where it is not listed !

Also no mention of an Austin Tilly (as expected).

Im sure I spotted Citroen in my first viewing but cannot find it now in the list!
