I think that we are be led off the rails. That looks rather like Chatham dockyard in the background, so is it an armoured train wagon?

prototype body for the Humber Pig ?

 

 

Richard, now that's a much more sensible suggestion, especially knowing my tendancies, but nope.

Looks a bit like a Saracen to me.

 

 

Yes it does look a bit that way, but nope.

Nope, but do you recognise this?

Clive,

 

It looks to be quite lightly armoured or perhaps an unarmoured prototype, the engine covers do not look very thick and evidence of the panels being bolted on. The multistorey buildings in left background, flats or barrack quarters (?), have the 1960's look so will say the picture dates from that era. I am going for some home grown vehicle from RUC.

 

Would this be a photo from the new book on RUC vehicles, due out this month??

Richard all very well reasoned, but no its not in the new book. As a little hint, I have removed some censorship!

The trucks in the background look like FN........so could it be something to do with the Belgian forces..or police ?

Wrong country but getting warm

 

 

 

 

Hmmm......after studying the vehicles in the background, I now think them to be Renault Goelette trucks, thus making it the possibility of being some French type of armoured vehicle for internal security, etc.

I thought the same Richard but couldn't find a pic of anything French although did find a couple that resembled it, although I know I've seen a pic of it somewhere before which made me think of the Irish connection.

Yes very good, well done Richard

 

Yes it is indeed a French Police vehicle, the photo is courtesy of the Prefecture de Police.

 

I can see it was a shrewd precaution to have masked out the other vehicles in the earlier posts as it would have given the game away too soon.

 

Now what about a date anyone?

 

and any ideas what the thing is? I have no idea at all!

Apparently the vehicle is circa 1935. But I don't know the date of the photo itself, I agree with others that the flats look very 1960s.

 

Does anyone know the vehicle that this thing is based on? I have no idea at all.

Possibly Marmom Herrington? the French did a lot of experiments during the 20's 30's with various armoured vehicles.
