  1. Yes, I've read the thread, thats why I'm following up here instead of starting another thread. I've seen you posted exerts from the Jan 1945 fitting instructions and the 'Para' version. Given they've made a manual in Jan 1945 seems to me to be indicative either there was no structured way previously; or a different way. The Belgian wartime WSC's for instance had antenna in front; not in the rear. Unlike British and Dutch vehicles. . I seem to remember having seen some with the radio's placed on the long side. So, still have questions as to internal configuration of the WSC rad
  2. Unfortunately the TNA is off limits due to COVID and Brexit is going to make it a bit more difficult. I've already gone through the search engine and WSC does bring up very few hits. But I'll keep giving it a try. I wondered if Bovington might have something but I doubt it. I'm not sure yet but there seem to be 2 configurations possible. Either a single canvas with a triangular cut centrally that is folded back; with on the sides round cut outs with flaps. Or its a canvas with a triangular cut out and side cut outs on top of the standard WSC canvas top. As to the internal configur
  3. I beg to differ though. I've seen the same on a Prinses Irene Brigade vehicle and on a XXX corps(?) WSC but with the rack addition. They do have 1 thing in common: they're all radio vehicles. I wonder if a specific canvas was made for the racked versions and these were used for all radio vehicles. Would explain it.
  4. If you look at the second picture in my previous post you could notice that there's something on top of the canvas tilt. The third picture in the previous post has an opening in the middle at the windshield frame in the canvas. Looking at different British scout cars, including Belgian ones used; I've notived the canvas opens up in the middle front section of the vehicle. So far I'vnt come across a M3 scout car with a canvas tilt that opens up in the middle front section. Here again it looks like 2 canvas tilts.
  5. Adding some more pictures from White Scout cars from the Belgian Brigade. These have the standard British modifications. Anyone aware of the usage of two types of covers?
  6. Now I notice the angle of the frame tube (front of engine, next to exhaust pipe) to the stem of the steering pintle(?). Its more at a 45° angle like on an Ariel W/NG; whilst a BSA WM20 is steeper. Right, so that would end that discussion on whether its an ariel or a bsa. Bummer, kinda wished it had been a BSA
  7. Nice! Upon closer inspection I think the picture I mentioned isnt an ariel but a BSA WM20
  8. Fabulous Ron! I wonder if the motorcycle is still in existance somewhere.... At least now i can build a replica. I've also asked our BE armed forces archives to dig up information on another ariel my grandfather was pictured in between 1945-1948 (more likely 1945-1946). No frame numbers; just the Belgian military license plate
  9. Hi, Would you be able (and willing) to look up a Ariel WNG 350cc frame number for me? I found a frame number on a document from 1952 of a Ariel WNG purchased by my grandfather. I'm lucky to have recorded it somewhere digitally because someone misplaced that piece. XG46363. Thanks in advance
  10. Anyone aware of any Humber FWD/Utility spare parts? Axles, engine, chassis?
