  1. Parts lists do occasionally turn up (at a price). But if you're searching bear in mind that 'RAF type' is a nickname. Officially they are: Leyland W.O. Subsidy Model, Class A, Type 5000.
  2. Almost certainly a post war body. Does it have a front brush guard across the radiator? If so, it's probably an 8cwt that's been converted. Edit: Just re-read the earlier post saying that does have the brush guard, so it would be a 8cwt conversion.
  3. Dukes - 10 September https://app.dukes-auctions.com/en/auction/1004-classic-cars-and-transport-memorabilia

  5. Berliet CBA: https://www.prewarcar.com/301210-pair-of-cba-trucks-with-very-rare-tipping-system
  6. Yes and no. They were built to certain specs that had been established under the pre-war War Office subsidy scheme (such as controls and wheel sizes) but otherwise could do their own thing (for example some used chain drive, others live axles; they used their own engines or propriety engines; etc.). They weren't built to a universal design like the Liberty.
  7. Not sure I understand the context of the question/relevance to Alvis. Anyway, home grown WWI subsidy trucks used steel wheels - I'd need to double check if that was actually part of the specification - whereas most imported trucks did not or were inconsistent.
  8. I think you mean to link to this one https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/205189024
  9. Ah yes! I was imagining something on a very different scale.
  10. An intriguing early trailer for sale. Probably not military but interesting nevertheless. Why don't they show a picture of the name/data plate!? Postage: Royal Mail 1st class @ £3.70 - lol https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/143649422263?ul_noapp=true
  11. Here's one for sale should they take your fancy: http://www.elalamein.eu/f60l-ambulance
  12. It's either a F60L or a C60L - 'F' and 'C' for Ford and Chevrolet respectively, '60' for 60cwt (3 ton) and 'L' for long chassis. The C15A was a Chevrolet 15 cwt, with 'A' for four wheel drive (as opposed to C15 for the two wheel drive version).
  13. Of course it would help if I could type! I should have said Alvis-Straussler Ltd. Some info here: https://someinterestingfacts.net/straussler-armored-car-ac1-ac2-and-ac3/
  14. Can't see it! The number doesn't help - it is part of a series allocated to the Middle East.
