  1. Hi Alan, Well you have to bite the bullet here, I have some chassis number searches in with them, and I am still waiting for a results more than a year now. so if they have the information, its a bit of luck. just look at it as a few schooners, I have spent a lot of money(thousands pounds) and I am no further forward, with our ambos research although I think I have become a bit obsessive. the truth is out there.(so I still believe). regs Rupert
  2. Hi Alan more info, regs Rupert
  3. hi Richard , quite right just some old info i picked up, I had the correct dates.which I will put in my files. I agree with your dates, regs Rupert
  4. Hi Alan, You can do a chassis no search on the Royal Logistics Corps web site, that may bring something up I will look though what I have(very little), what I found Humber utility 4x4 contract date 1940,(should be 1942) WD no. (maybe) M4380025. Also for that engine number, Humber 4x4 imported from Japan to New Zealand, Waikato district 1988. If it has an 1949 ERM plate then you will have better luck., Example. the words Ministry of Supply at the top WD no, 51 RC 72 chassis no. 20778 regs Rupert
  5. Hi Alan great pictures Regs rupert
  6. Hi that is a very picture 21 AG Canadian? I have found that the contract numbers are missing for the Very small number of Vehicles I have looked at for this unit.Some captured. From what I have found out about Census numbers. This is just my understanding of it without going too deep. These are numbers issued with contracts By the Ministry of supply (MoS). To keep track of vehicles issued to government services, and in the main form the vehicles asset (registration) number. I recommend that anyone looking into these buy Rob van Meel’s book’s,(2), “Allocation
  7. Hi Wally When i mentioned, just some records, I meant they are not complete, I maybe a bit hard here as I rely on digital copies. So not compleate, not yet digitised? and some searches will not produce any results. But they can be used to back up information you may already have. i should add they are hand written and not always accurate, and should not be the sole bases of ones research. and I do appreciate that they were saved.
  8. HI All the key cards are 35 pounds now ouch! and 10 pounds for a chases no search. the RLC team are helpful. But is just some records. regs Rup
  9. Hi Alan, If you are lucky and the box came over post war it may have an MoS id plate fitted somewhere, for aussie records they use the engine number, but this as you would appreciate can be a long shot. the axle sounds a bit serious.is the wheel off in the picture? I have to ask do you have any Austin Truck parts about, i am looking for some bonnet side covers. 8 louvers. regs Rupert
  10. Hi I am just adding, this as i cannot find the link I want, This I believe is a TAC sign as its on the side of the Austin. what does it mean? regs Rupert
  11. Hi Alan did you get my message? as my screen when blank. regs Rupert
  12. Hi Alan that is an interesting vehicle, do you have any better pictures? I am looking at refugee cargo chasing the history of our Austin Ambo, and other's, So any British Army stuff (WW2 Korea) that turns up over here, I am a bit interested, Queensland being one of the places of interest. regs rupert
  13. 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 the / runs over a 0 so looks 7/1 but is 7/0. and a standard layout.for a MAC 502 ambulance. which I now know that the white bar \ is for HQ unit I am warming to the mark being 27/2 or 27/12.
