  1. Hi This page has come along, I can see some good work ha been done, I am trying to identify these markings, there is a white diagonal running from lower left to top right. I have not seen this except for a REME markings earlier in the post. this marking appear on Austin K2Y ambulances in c1941 but where? Middle or Far east. the 7 is a positive and a standard layout.for a MAC 502 ambulance. regs rupert

  6. Hi Geraint, I can see a jeep, I would be guessing anything else. Austin K2ys are my area,in the main. "The observer's Fighting Vehicles Directory, World war II by Bart H. Vanderveen" is the book to look for, Have you tried RAF Cosford, they have a web site. and a vehicle page. regs Rupert

  8. Hi Nice resto, My neigobore was in the REME during WW2 now passed, they used to put Ford V8's (those that were worn out) into motor boats filled with explosives.( sorry I do not the place, But he was at D-day) Now I have written this as the power plant, long time ago mmm. regs Rupert
  9. Hi The humber box has the same markings, if you can find a good picture that might help. it is film and fiction, filmed in 1957/8. regs Rupert
  10. Hi I do not know what the roof catches look like, But Paul Beck,The Complete Automobilist, does hinge blanks and parts, spares for Austin K2Y ambulance hinges. regs Rupert
  11. Hi Richard, that would explain the Government registration number, Just a few numbers off. regs Rupert
  12. Hi i cannot find the post on this site But it was for a humber restoration, they found this number. I found this out maybe this helps, does someone knows who it was. regs rupert
  13. Hi As I was looking for Humber information, About 150 Humber 1 ton CT (1955) were listed in the Australian Army. no's ARN 105671-105823, thes records are quite poor, Based in Victoria, i have not seen any about. regs Rupert
  14. Hi i am looking for information on this Humber box, As I believe it has an RAF registration number. Any other GXW regos considered. regs rupert
  15. Hi NOS, Just some pics, regs Rupert Just a game.
  16. Cheers Radek, Can I blame the computer? regs rupert
  17. Hi all The registration is for FYY 228 ,Jan 1940, 5625, K3/SL London. So All looks good for a gen appliance, regs rup
  18. Hi there HNY me been picky again, for the door post mirrors they used the same brackets as the roof mounted mirrors, and side screens were only fitted to the passenger side, from mid 1941 intermittently to the drivers side, then both sides from about the same time. nice work thought. early Austin with single side screen and mirrors. I do not know if this was a duel panel, as later on but there is a change in the part number. regs Rupert
  19. Hi all, I go with the Gloss blue, and Black mudguards, as post 1946, also the a rego is on the front bumper,the picture is dated c1945. Shame the picture is of poor quality, the ambo is a 1943 model but the picture is poor (it could be a rebuilt) no exhaust showing mmmm. For Austin K2Y ambulances, the cross, lots of variants small up about 1943, but not a rule. Civillian registration numbers,replaced army census dos. But not always. Civilian Ambulances no cross, but the Word AMBULANCE displayed front and rear.(Sometimes) Gloss grey finish.in this case
  20. hi all Found one more although a bit post war regs rupert
  21. Hi mcspool, cheers for the info, I did try e-mailing Whitedell eng ltd, but no reply, I will not need any for a bit, as these purposed age limit to be placed on tyres here ( ten years) , It could be fun. regs Rupert
  22. Hi I am glad i found this, I am a 10'50 x 16 type, i would like to comment that I fitted Wallace Wade 10.50x16 (chevron) to cmp rims OK, I get about 1000 miles per 1 mm, out of them, so they should last about 12,000 miles.trouble being the chevron tread for use on the road, I do not know what track grips would be like, I know bar treads are a bit rough, i would be looking for sand tyres, or road type. regs Rupert
  23. Hi the fourth picture I sent in is on a British Airfield just post war, the Ambulance is from an RAF contract for Austin Ambulances. the only contract I have found (A1782/1943) for 42 Austins, for the RAF. There K2Y's came from WD Contracts, But it all go a bit messy, at the wars end. The Austin K2y was rated as 10 seated/4 stretcher, and spare parts would be local. the maximum carried was 29. regs rupert
  24. Hi I should add that the RED Cross Ambulances had Civilian registrations, As well as military, I have not seen both displayed at the same time. They also had different signage, cross's painted out and the word Ambulance painted on headboards. regs Rupert
