  1. The first vehicle belongs to 2nd AGRA = Army Group Royal Artillery See Wiki link https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2nd_Army_Group_Royal_Artillery If Wiki is correct it might be the answer you are looking for. Richard
  2. I am looking for the correct trailer lead that connects the Warner socket on a Champ to my Mk1 Sankey trailer. I have FV166462/9 which is 10ft 6" long, I think I am looking for a shorter lead FV166462/4 which is around 5ft 6" long. Could anybody confirm? Also does anybody know which vehicle / trailer combination FV166462/9 goes with - it might be up for sale! (FV166462/9 has the following number on it's packing LV6/MT4 2590-99-803-5876) Thanks Richard
  3. 06BB47 is pictured in Pat Ware's In National Service book as a gate guard with a London District badge
  4. Following this thread with interest. Were early Lightweights fitted with Grey vinyl seats? In the distant future I will need some seats for my early 1969 2A (42FG92). Thanks
  5. Thanks to the link to the earlier posts. This seems very similar to another trailer mentioned = 69FG52. It does seem odd that trailers with all the features of a wartime 10cwt trailers were being issued with new registrations in the late 1960's. It has all the signs of being military with convoy lights etc. Is it possible that they were held in store from the late 1940's before being registered? You would have thought that by the 1960's any new trailer would have been constructed on the standard Sankey or Brockhouse chassis?
  6. I have just been made aware of a Jointers trailer that may be up for sale. The construction appears wartime but the 6/VEH contact number would indicate post war? The back panel has 70FG13 stencilled on it. Is it possible to date the trailer? Thanks
  7. Just spotted this on ebay if anybody is interested. No connection to seller. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ORIGINAL-1962-BRITISH-ARMY-SPARE-PARTS-MANUAL-COMMER-TRUCK-15cwt-4x2-Q2-Mk-III/124568559026?hash=item1d00dd5db2:g:uzgAAOSwsbhgJtl0
  8. Last MOT in March 2020 shows mileage as 43150 however the advert states 26720
  9. There is a WOT6 wartime photograph on ebay at the moment if anybody is interested. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Military-Vehicles-Land-Rover-x-4-Black-and-White-photograph/193845683376?hash=item2d221a64b0:g:ASwAAOSw5GJf~G3s
  10. I am looking for a 1968 to 1975 dated BCF Fire Extinguisher bracket (FV351285). I believe this was standard fitment to British Military vehicles, an empty extinguisher would also be good. PM me if you have one you want to sell Thanks Richard
  11. See illustration from 1956 '.50in. ALL ARMS AA WEAPON' pamphlet showing mount fitted to a vehicle (Austn K9?)
  12. I am looking for a Land Rover Series 2A Lightweight '236' prefix serial number engine to replace the civilian engine in my newly acquired 1969 Lightweight. Any condition considered. PM me if you have anything. Thanks Richard
  13. Richard, Yes thanks that's what I am looking for. I just wanted to make sure I get the right one Richard
  14. Can anybody help me converting NSN part numbers into ZA / ZB Numbers? In particular the ground spike for mounting the ATU when removed from a vehicle. Is ZA29831 the same as 5820-99-949-1022? Thanks Richard
  15. I recently purchased a job lot of radio equipment including a standard Clansman TUAAM wing box. However it contains a MFJ-910 Mobile Antenna Matcher mounted into a RS Components diecast box as per pictures rather than the expected standard TUAAM I assume this was a civilian modification rather than military? Any thoughts?
  16. Thanks for the information, I have emailed the Gasket company today and await a reply
  17. I have just purchased a BSA 300w Charging set for rebuild with no spark and a low compression. I have downloaded a copy of the Manual from http://www.howardengineerium.co.uk/Images/BSA Charging Set Manual.pdf however Page 31 is missing. This covers checking and adjusting valve clearances which I suspect I will need! Has anybody got a copy of page 31 that they could send me or upload? In addition is there a UK source for head gaskets? Thanks Richard
  18. Wally, I believe it should look like this being approx 23 inches long and 13 inches deep. Thanks Richard
  19. Has anybody got a C42 Radio and power supply 'bottom tray' that they would be interested in selling? Thanks Richard
  20. Try the following link to Timefactors, I purchased one a few years ago and wear it every day https://www.timefactors.com/prs29new.htm
  21. If the vehicle was rebuilt by Henley's in Weston Super Mare you will have B269 stamped on the data plate as the rebuild location.
  22. Lizze, I will miss your photographs and insight into service life in Libya, I wish you luck with your book and please let us all know when it is published. I will definiteley buy a copy Richard
  23. 'Oversuit tank crews camouflage' the camouflaged version on the standard 'Pixie suit' I believe, a bit warm for daytime in Libya?
  24. Whilst not a direct replacement I have produced a new harness for my Champ using Yellow 28/0.3 17.5Amp PVC cable. 4.8mm heat shrink with the cable identifiers written on with a fine permanent marker before you shrink it on completes the job. Champs appear to have both blue and yellow Unipren harnesses.
  25. I believe the last vehicle in the line is a Carrier, AOP No.4(FV402), the AOP version of the Cambridge carrier. Thanks for the posts my farther in law is very interested as he was with J battery 3RHA in Germany then Eygpt and then Libya.
