  1. Hi This is currently listed on eBay, I don't know if this is any help http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ex-Military-British-Leyland-HIPPO-Truck-Service-Manual-1930s-3-GHQ-SIGNALS-suez-/262676550328?hash=item3d28be12b8:g:Rb8AAOSwzaJYAi82 Ross
  2. Found these two articles. http://www.iwcp.co.uk/news/news/museum-closes-51249.aspx http://www.islandecho.co.uk/news/islands-military-history-museum-closes/ Ross
  3. Hi, I have looked in my copy of the book mentioned. All there is for LSU 304 is that it was with the bus companies Aldershot and District and then Alder Valley but nothing about subsequent owners. Its an interesting book is well worth buying if you haven't already got it. Regards Ross
  4. When I visited the house and museum on a wednesday it was just a normal opening day, there was no special event on or anything so would guess the truck spends all the time outside. Regards Ross
  5. Thanks for the information, looks like it has had a large amount of money spent on it judging by the photos of its restoration. Regards Ross
  6. Having visited the above museum last week I was surprised to see a very tidy example of one of Billy Smarts Mack's sitting outside the museum building. The motor museum is made up of mainly privately owned vehicles from the 1930's to the early 1990's on loan to the museum. Most of the vehicles are run of the mill cars but also include a couple of Bentley's and a rather nice Aston Martin Lagonda. Does anyone know the history of this Mack and also how many Mack's did Billy Smart's have? Regards Ross
  7. Hi Alan Ok no problem, thought that was the one you were referring to, my error. Just found the one you were referring to. Regards Ross

  9. Hi Jeff Have a look at the thread link below, I don't know if this is useful or duplicates what is in W&T No3. http://hmvf.co.uk/forumvb/showthread.php?28700-Diamond-T-amp-Ward-La-France-in-the-Swiss-Army&highlight=ward+france Regards Ross
  10. Yes there is a couple of them restored or in the process of being restored. I have found the few photos I have of them. As well as being used a "Clubmobiles" they were also used as normal buses and as ambulances by the US Army. Ross
  11. The ARC's were converted London Transport coaches.Sometime around 1942 many were converted to American Red Cross "Clubmobiles" to dispense Coffee and doughnuts to services men on airfields and bases around the uk.The US Army had them on loan from London Transport. They were painted grey and given names of various american cities. After the war they were converted back to coaches by the owner. I will dig out some photos I have somewhere and add them to the thread. Regards Ross
