  1. Thanks for that Sean N, I will need to transfer my query to a dustcart forum 🙂 They are next to a refuse destructor.
  2. Richard. I was presuming from the shape (and shadows) that these are one and the same type of vehicle, so quite helpful for doing an i.d. if anyone recognised the distinctive 4 wheeler unit. Of course, these may not be of military origin - but given the numbers of and date it seemed likely. I am quite sure these are not in service with any branch or Ministry, just someones vehicles in a yard. Thanks.
  3. Richard, the vehicles are in a storage yard in Glasgow 1947. The aircrew bus seems a reasonable suggestion but what vehicle is it based on, that is my main question? It has a very long overhang to the front, but they are not (at first sight) articulated units. Duncan.
  4. I've found another photo of the same site, that (maybe) is a bit clearer? The photos can be found on Britain From Above this one is SAW009715. The very bottom centre. If you have not used the site previously you will need to sign up for free entry in order to be able to enlarge the images.
  5. I'm not sure I agree with you there John. The only images I have come across of K5's show them with the front wheels pretty much under the drivers position. I dont know where the driver sits in these but the front wheels are set well behind the front of the vehicle plus it has this extended 'neck' that looks a bit unusual to my eyes at least.
  6. Just another one I have come across whilst trawling the web. The photo dates from 1947 (definite) and what is here is as good as it gets, but it shows the outline of the cab, the fact that they are four wheelers and the well pronounced forward control seating position. But other than that it is outside my knowledge. Can anyone help identify the type?
  7. You could try Frank Brown, he does British canvas.
  8. I have decided they are not DUKWs, even cut down ones, but I wonder if anyone on here can suggest a forum on where to find answers? My first thought was they were stripped DUKW hulls but finding the other photos suggests otherwise. I added the one with the truck in the top corner to indicate size. Photos dated 1948.
  9. The number 8, if I am informed correctly, is a chalked number added to help keep together various convoys. Other than that I cannot help further, other than to add that the squaddies appear to be Canadians given the I.D. numbers on the bike tanks ( and the fact they are Harleys.)
  10. You might do worse than going on Facebook to the Bedford MW 15cwt truck group. A number of members on there have the aero-screen vehicles.
  11. Now where did I get 4 from? I also have a 3.
