  1. That's very useful information. I can picture that blue - my Dad worked in overalls that were dark blue becoming almost an "Airforce blue" over time. I must get the paints out again - the blue jacket will add a bit of interest to the picture. Thanks again!
  2. Thanks for the additional information about my Granda's buddy. I thought the big fella just squeezed into a second jacket, to keep out the chill! Would you know the shade of blue for his over's jacket? and would his over trousers be blue?
  3. I've spent the last couple of months working on this painting - based on the photo posted earlier. (I'm no more than an enthusiastic amateur...as you can see) The information on this thread provided details not visible in my 100 years old photo (thank you very much!). I hinted at the Cologne location in the background - no idea if Granda's truck could possibly have been at that particular place with the cathedral in the background....but sure,m why not!

I take it this lorry would have been used for transporting anything and everything that an Army required? Maybe a little late ...or very early, but here i
  6. Hello, I came across this thread when “googling” for background information relating to my Grandfathers service in WW1. He joined up on the 1st November 1915 and by the 9th, he was at the ASC HQ, Grove Park. I find the photos of your restored Dennis a fascinating insight to the equipment he was working with in France, Belgium and Germany. I congratulate you on an amazing restoration, a wonderful piece of history. My Grandfather was from Newtownards, Co Down, Ireland, but like your truck, served with the New Zealand forces. The photo was taken at Cologne and shows my grandfather taking
