  1. I recently came across these socks which were stored in a cardboard box for many years and still look very good. I wonder if they are second world war period? They are marked Army grey, made in England, size 10 inch as can be seen on the picture. I've seen socks with a label stitched inside but were always post war or jungle issue. I once saw socks that were stamped in the same way as this pair and were dated 1944. However these are undated. They also have that typical old scent that makes them useless as Christmas socks 😁 Happy X-mas, Danny
  2. Thank you Tim for this addition! Unfortunately I 'm not on facebook and the LTF website does not show a detailed program. Is there a chance for me to find out if and where I can watch the XXX corps tommorrow September 22nd as this is my last chance. I would also like to show this to my son who is 18 years old and has never seen this. I would be greatful if anybody can tell me where to be tomorrow for the XXX corps!!! Many thanks, Danny
  3. Yesterday I read a Dutch newspaper article about the event with which everything became clear to me. There appear to be two organization groups i.e. "Liberation task force" and "Stichting operation Market Garden". The southern and northern convoy routes are organized by the "Stichting operation Market Garden" in which in particular US vehicles participate. In the "Liberation task force" in particular British vehicles participate. I didn't know that. The reason of two organization groups is a difference in insight about what the event should look like. Let's not discuss about that to
  4. Thank you Pete and Tim! Awesome video …! Maybe I am late with my questions and had to ask them before all started! I hope all these vehicles shown in the video Pete added to this post will participate in the northern convoy route this comming Sunday? If I'm right this route will travel from base camp in Schijndel to the other camp in Grave, then to Groesbeek and ending in Nijmegen. Does anybody perhaps know? I only have the oppertunity to go on Sunday and I would like to see all the British very much. Thanks, Danny
  5. Last Saturday I 've watched the 75th anniversary Hells Highway southern route vehicles convoy about 10 km from the starting point in Leopoldsburg Belgium. To me as a British vehicles enthousiast the convoy was very disappointing. Hardly any British WWII vehicles. I remember only one Bedford MW, one Fordson WOT2, one C15 CMP, a few utility cars and that's about it. Maybe I have forgotten one but at least no British armoured vehicles, no bren carriers and no tanks at all. If I have looked closely I have hardly seen British license plates on the vehicles. The passing of the convoy took only half
  6. Looking at the so called "Dapple"/"Foliage" or “Mickey Mouse” camouflage pattern on the Bedford MWD as shown in the pictures below I was wondering how the camouflage pattern on the GS-body may look like with the tarpaulin taken off the vehicle. I have indicated this in red implying that some “ears” will not be there on the GS-body. Is this correct, or could there be any “ears” under the tarpaulin which means that there are actually two patterns, with and without tarpaulin? The above pattern is similar to the pattern below. Is the above pattern ty
  7. Thanks MatchFuzee, but these are slightly different. I'm actually looking for original ones! Who can help? Cheers, Danny
  8. Looking for two rear bumper stops for my bedford MW as presented in the pictures below. Thanks, Danny 2.75 x 2 inch
  9. I'm looking for at least three, preferably five, footman loops as presented in the attached picture. The dimension between the two holes (center to center) is typical 6.2 cm to fit the holes in the cab (red arrows) of my bedford mw. Thanks, Danny
  10. Richard, You keep up the courage with such a big project. It looks really good! 👍 Danny
  11. Battery cable protection under cab. Restoration of both doors
  12. OD paint is porous at the surface to give it a matt look. This property is because of the addition of a matting agent such as precipitated silica but only at a dosage of a few percent. Water will certainly not penetrate through the paint layer such that the metal underneath will rust because of the presence of the silica or matting agent. On the contrary, the presence of silica will have a positive effect on corrosion because of its anti corrosion property. Weathering of coating films causes, in particular, a change of the film surface as function of time. Depending on weather conditions
