Hi Iain,

I thought you would appreciate the photo. I am at the event this week and a lot of Perenties, 4x4 and 6x6 of all variations here.

regards, Richard

A photo from Corowa today (Tuesday), a LARC V, GPA and Weasel waiting the signal to launch in the water. This is the Murray river. There are more amphibs arriving this week.

What a fantastic event, would love to see more. I'll bet it is very a very social occasion as well!

Due to no internet connection this photo was not today, but last Friday. Spotted on Holbrook to Culcairn road ........... actually I was driving it and stopped for a brief rest on way to the Corowa Swim-In & Military Vehicle Gathering...... a Perentie FFR

How much does it cost to get the Perenti FFR from the UK to Australia and back again?  I'd love to attend Corowa in my Lwt

Looks like an Australian registered Landy so not taken from UK I would suspect.

I can say from experience that you would be looking at around £2k each way including dockyard handling charges using container shipping. Not cheap.

As Iain says, this is a Perentie that belongs to friends in Australia.

Shipping a vehicle into Australia is fraught with problems, not just cleanliness but all items of asbestos have to be removed and certified otherwise you are in for big problems and costs.

Spotted a Militant from the train yesterday.

Sat in a scrap yard off Greenfield lane Doncaster. 

Balby Motor spares comes up on Google maps but milli not visible on that.

What looked like a German WW2 lorry being transported up the M40 last Sunday morning. Looked to be authentic but was wondering if may have been made up for a movie.

Being towed - looks like an ex-British Army 2 Ton office trailer converted as living accommodation.

Looks like Nick who used to be a regular on this forum, probably the only Explorer fitted with a Jake brake!

Yep that's Nikki, along with his newly finished living van with patio, and as has been pointed out he is on his way to Llandudno.

Today the A34 heading towards Oxford bout 1 o'clock.  What looked like a camel trophy towing a desert coloured WMIK.

Anyone on here?

Spotted a tidy series 3 and series 2 SWB slightly later, couldn't tell if they were military or not (passed to quickly)
