  10. SKIP l do not know if you have contacted any one but a friend has been up to SCOTLAND to collect some thing for me and stayed in BIGGER on the way back and visited the BIGGER MUSEUM and picked up this print out
  11. SKIP what l was getting at is they may have the drawings for the coupling for the ALBION CX 24 as for it been the same as the TRMU is the ? After ball and socket its hard from the images to compare the two against each other to make a judgement
  12. Looking through information that l have it seems that the type of coupling for the trailer was a ball and socket ? . When the museum required details of the coupling for the SCAMMELL TRMU to make a replica drawings where obtained from the BRITISH COMMERICAL VEHICLE MUSEUM LEYLAND LANCS have you thought of contacting them

  16. it' a while but the lock is on the left side of the turret pull the handle upwards and turn it so it holds up in the unlocked position
  17. As has been said this has been known about for over twenty years and as l said before has cost the tax payer a large amount to get to this point. There have been other case's like this and the results have been the same let off to lightly. It's time that the people who investigate this type of crime for that is what it is got their act together
  18. All the information should be held by the RLC MUSEUM as they took the records archives from the old M.A.T But how much they took l do not know the sale of items from Fort Paull shows how much they gave away and the files l have were the backup scans that l paid for in case of loss of the original items and returned to me when the TQMS retired after the museum closed. l do not know if any of the information is online
  19. THE information was complied from first the number two key cards and contract records and chilwell lists held at the former MUSEUM OF ARMY TRANSPORT and members of the AEC society . The question of service history is one of the most asked by owners of vehicles of the world war two period unless you can find a picture of it in service the answer is unlikely

But it never stopped the human from improving these ideas. And as long as there is a need it will continue
