  1. I suspect it's a Volkswagen Type 181
  2. Just passed this on the A46 Newark Bypass. I assume it’s off to The Victory Show. (PS, if anybody knows the owner, point out trailer & car number plates differ!)
  3. Lots of Allied armour around and some interesting soft skins. Nothing German or Soviet this year (OK, the ex-Czech Praga "Lizard", yours for £16k) M3 from a South African theme park, the part-restored , ex-Fort Paull Marmon-Herrington, an impressive "Dragon Wagon" , the "Lizard", a big GMC CCKW, complete with kitchen sink.
  4. You sure it's not off a big hot tap?
  5. The last thing that the retreating troops would want, is to send up a big pillar of smoke "Here we are, send the Stukas". Some did find themselves suddenly faced with German soldiers, others simply abandoned their vehicles, maybe removed the distributor head. Enough damaged vehicles for the Germans to salvage parts from, to get others working.
  6. Most impressive. Weathered realistically too.
  7. Most impressive. Weathered realistically too.
  8. According to Craig Moore, it's not correct. He's talked to IWM contacts.
  9. Fylde Bus Blog: On Tow According to this, possibly in Yorkshire.
  10. Well, the general public, still have the "Five reverse & one forward gear" attitude towards Italian tanks. The "8 million bayonets", certainly had many members, who were less than enthusiastic when it came to fighting for Mussolini. The Regia Aeronautica's activity in the Battle of Britain, was very limited, contributing 5% of the aircraft, they flew few sorties, the first on 24th October 1940, raiding Harwich & Felixstowe, the last major raid, on 11th November, with smaller numbers engaged in attacks later in November. They lost 10 planes in combat (the CR42 Falco in the RAF Museum, being one) & a similar number in accidents.
  11. The Russian one's a T34/85, a bit of Korean War booty, I assume. Probably the one now on display at Bovington. The Caernarvon, was used in chassis development for the Conqueror tank, it was basically a Conqueror's hull, with a Centurion's turret, as the 120mm gun, was delayed. Bet they were embarrassed with the Saracen breaking a rose joint.
  12. The BEF basically left behind an estimated 700 tanks, 20,000 motor bikes, 45,000 cars and lorries, 880 field guns and 310 larger equipments, about 500 anti-aircraft guns, 850 anti-tank guns, 6,400 anti-tank rifles and 11,000 machine-guns. A lot wasn't useable, quite a bit was. https://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic.php?f=132&t=187877&sid=ac07d12c408160e056a1d1bd95e9c21e
  13. Maybe, if the loonies do manage to completely take over the asylum and the ban goes ahead (Note hybrids still permissable to be sold new, until 2035, by 2055, we might see petrol going, diesel much later, as the range for HGVs on batteries won't be enough. Time to plan a move to South Africa? A teensie 0.009% of their vehicles are milk floats.
  14. 2030, from 2035. Assuming the green scam doesn't blow up in their faces soon, or we get a viable party to vote for, who'll overturn it.
