Wally Great stuff there. The Lightweight spec looks interesting. I have the FVRDE spec but that looks earlier than the one I have. Would be happy to pay for a copy.

Wally,

I would obviously be very interested in any info on the Conqueror, particularly the ARV.  The stowage sketch would be exceptionally useful.

RICHARD most of the FOX TRIALS went in to storage in the first  boxes the one shown is fifty s1x pages and one of the smaller reports. JOHN l know l have some documents on the CONQUEROR as to stowage diagrams to be honest there may be some in the last box which l have not opened have you come across the document the history and disposal of the CONQUEROR. l have been trying to pack the last of  the items that where stored in the loft before the builders come this is something l had forgotten l knew l had the maintenance manual on the book shelf but  not this was in the box up stairs1376393162_25parts.thumb.jpg.d494fadde656e8a258645c951e550c58.jpg

Not to hijack Wally's thread, but Fox trials reminded me had this record of a rather pointless event.

While sorting through the boxes from time to time files on motorcycle trials appear this one made me smile the TIGER CUB  was my first motor cycle at the age of sixteen the  start of a love of two wheels with a engine   the trials took place in 1956  1646594510_tigercub.thumb.jpg.955706b4df0bcc4f5f265b1aad01d9df.jpg

Hi Wally,

I can still remember having just moved to a new home in 1961 (aged 10) and going to an army "At Home" at the local barracks, it was a Transport Coy of the RASC and a lot of exhibits, I distinctly recollect the Tiger Cub there as there was also a sectioned engine on display. Like you I had one as well, bought it for £17 as I recall! Great bike.

Richard

I have seen that in the book, I think there was a Greeves in that book as well. The French Army had some Tiger Cubs as I know  someone who has/had one.

The packing goes on wether every thing will get sorted out it looks unlikely so the un sorted boxes will just have to go as ismvee1.thumb.jpg.9908578d17b5d5c8d4e71a8aae79fc7e.jpgmvee2.thumb.jpg.6a4d1d1cf5bc6021c80afe7091eb3753.jpg
