  2. I am selling a couple of Ford Flathead V8s from my Dads estate tomorrow at Auction. HJ Pughs of Ledbury. Lot number 1043. I do hope they find a future life in an MV. Dad used to build Bren Carriers at Sentinel Works in Shrewsbury in the early part of the war , hence his love of the engine.
  3. I have the sad task of clearing my Dads collection of WW2 artefacts and I have come across this tow hitch. I think its an airborne trailer tow hitch assembly with an incorrect eye welded on the front. Can anyone confirm I am correct please? I would like to make sure it survives to live another day.

He was also in Burma I think with 152 Squadron where he was a ground Engineer on Spits, Thunderbolts and Mozzies from memory. Here he is in an almost famous photo as I have seen it several times on the net. He is kneeling down and holding the tail legs. Robert ( Bob ) Honychurch bought his first Jeep in 1951 whic
  8. Hi Larry and thanks for the reply. Firstly let me say I was aware of the debate and no doubt very accurate analysis of RAF vehicle paint during WW2, all of which makes perfect sense to me. I already have a Green Jeep and dont mind about whether its accurate or not. Secondly and perhaps a bit more controversially my father was in the RAF during the second world war and was seconded to water proofing vehicles ahead of D Day at RAF Little Rissington.

    RAF Blue

    Does anyone recognise this rather nice Jeep? I am trying to find out who supplied the colour as its a rather nice rendition of RAF Blue. If anyone can help me find out i would be very grateful thank Andrew
  10. I am open to sensible offers but I don’t want it to be broken for spares or converted into an ambulance or something. It’s also a rare thing and I don’t know where you find another project now.
