  2. THE information was complied from first the number two key cards and contract records and chilwell lists held at the former MUSEUM OF ARMY TRANSPORT and members of the AEC society . The question of service history is one of the most asked by owners of vehicles of the world war two period unless you can find a picture of it in service the answer is unlikely

  4. Good evening everybody, As a long time reader of this forum I have always been impressed by the work and knowledge shown by all the people involved in the restorations, I am now in the position of asking all you knowledgeable folk a question, can anybody identify this engine that I have recently found, it is about 1000cc, it is metric and has no makers mark or markings of any kind, it has a place for a starting handle, a clutch in the engine oil and no forced lubrication, could it be a WW1 era generator or pump engine ? Any ideas or info would be greatly appreciated. Andy

  5. Someone on this forum will know the answer!! There are the remains of numbers painted on the front of my Matador, a colleague suggested that they might be a D-Day vehicle landing number, I’ve seen pictures of other vehicles with similar numbers but I have no idea what there for, if anyone can help please let me know. Every day is a learning curve 🤔

  6. Perhaps too large for a Field Force Number (which can be up to 5 numbers) above coloured bars which would be used for mobilisation purposes. More likely to be a unit serial applied on a coloured (?red/blue) arm of service square. Is all the number readable? If it is (possibly) 74 on a red/blue square, that would indicate a Royal Artillery Field Regiment in an Armoured Division from 1944. Is there any further Divisional marking on the other side of the cab?

  7. Think so but a few numerous bad repairs and a Couple of big rips. Would be ok if I had a long arm sewing machine.

  8. All the information should be held by the RLC MUSEUM as they took the records archives from the old M.A.T But how much they took l do not know the sale of items from Fort Paull shows how much they gave away and the files l have were the backup scans that l paid for in case of loss of the original items and returned to me when the TQMS retired after the museum closed. l do not know if any of the information is online

  11. In an attempt to avoid taking the gearbox apart I've been reading through the manual for enlightenment. Have found a possible issue with the air pipes. Manual says green, red, white, yellow And mine is red, green, white, yellow( the white tag has slipped) I would be stunned if it was that simple but I'll be checking the pipes end to end to end tomorrow.
