  1. Although given the number of paint layers shown in the pictures I tend to agree that these are probably previous owners’ attempts at markings, the star pointing that way is definitely no proof that it isn’t original. Despite it being the wrong way round, it did happen in wartime, in theatre, that markings were applied in ways, sizes and locations which were not as the higher ups intended. An example of a star applied in wartime is shown here, 4th jeep on the right, courtesy of http://www.dday.center/preserving-history-1942-jeep-restoration-project.html
  2. Did you ever get an answer to your query?
  3. https://www.rlcarchive.org/VehicleSrch just type in 44Bm40 They have the history card for your vehicle.
  4. If I understand correctly, the relevant section has the parts breakdown, but no illustration of the battery box and components. Page L29 refers - http://daimlerferret.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/ISpP-List-Part-L-Electrical.pdf This is a link which has the parts catalogue in its entirety- http://daimlerferret.co.uk/manuals-and-emers
  5. This isn’t a cab over axle. The bonnet is sitting behind the body. Also, looks like what might be a rear light pod is sitting just behind the bonnet, with Penman written on it.
  6. Is it me, or is that frame number actually TL 46508? Engine number is interesting, reading as 3HW 56508. Am I right in thinking that would be the original engine for the frame if I’m reading that frame number correctly? Also, did anyone else notice the spurious 7 stamped above the 0 on the engine number? Wonder what happened there? Someone in a hurry to get to the NAAFI wagon for their tea and bun?
  7. These people have one, probably at more than you’re willing to spend though! https://www.eics-products.co.uk/shop/panels/6110998184829-box-distribution-emergency-crew-control/ but quite a bit cheaper than here-https://www.thexmod.com/item_detail.asp?id=741&t=Emergency_Crew_Controll_Box_MK_2__FV702523
  8. No problems, glad you’re sorted. If he does find them, I’ll get one or two for myself, and presumably, he’ll put the rest up on ebay as he has in the past.
  9. Ok, had a response and the guy’s going to look on Monday. If he finds them, he’ll let me know, and I’ll pm you his details. He was asking for twenty quid each at the time, but that was in 2018. Fingers crossed!
  10. You’re welcome! I’m still looking to see if I can turn up anything else. I have emailed someone who had 8 in stock when they took down their listing, so will see. Fingers crossed! A few years ago (lordy how time has flown), I bid on and won a full extinguisher, in mint condition, all for 99p. I asked the seller if he happened to have a bracket, and he said yes, but unfortunately had already posted the extinguisher to me, apologised (yes, HE apologised!), posted the bracket (NEW!) and absolutely refused any extra remuneration .........my one bit of luck in a long time! I used paypal a
  11. This one’s a bit cheaper.....my, how prices have gone up! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/333757324058

  13. Engine number XXE3284 Chassis/contract number 294/23/S1946
  14. It is an SD2 butterfly bomb. We were finding loads of stuff like that in the area. It seems that although the area was used as training ranges post war, and post 1969, during the war it was a battle area.
  15. You could try this. Had it for years. The pipe goes hard but as soon as it touches fuel again, it goes soft - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Silverline-451324-Jiggle-Siphon/dp/B002QRWGLQ/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=Fuel+jiggler&qid=1595603929&sr=8-3
