  1. Light Car Patrols 1916-19: War and Exploration in Egypt and Libya with the Model T Ford: Amazon.co.uk: Williams, Claud, McGuirk, Russell: 9781900971157: Books
  2. Try the Albion Trust: Home - The Biggar Albion Foundation Ltd (albion-trust.org.uk)
  3. Yes, via here: IWM Collections | Imperial War Museums Search by keyword or the photo number if you know it. Only a fraction of the photograph collection has been scanned. But the official WW1 series is there (the 'Q' series).
  4. Probably not. The thing is it is not an obvious standard type and so not easy to recognize from what's shown. Do you have any other views? Any idea as to the country this was taken in?
  5. UNEARTHED: WW2 Buffalo Tank Buried For Almost 75 YEARS! - YouTube
  6. The above photo is from the IWM official collection - ref B11345 Other photos include B11346, B13433, B15625, BU3907 and BU5109.
  7. Perhaps Andy is being coy? Much as the speculation is fun, I suggest anyone with the resources and motivation to help has a private message exchange to see if they can get beyond foxes and chickens.
  8. Try Paul Meekins or Falconwood Transport Bookshop. About Us (paulmeekins.co.uk) FALCONWOOD TRANSPORT BOOKSHOP | eBay Stores
  9. And a superb one for sale at auction on 14 April (if you have deep pockets): Auction Details | H&H Classics (handh.co.uk)
  10. I wonder how the owner is getting on with this. They could be in need of a parts list: DAAG Ratingen Düsseldorf 3 Tonnen Kardan-Einheitswagen Ersatzteilliste 1920 | eBay
  11. Hi Colin - you've probably found this string showing what is believed to be another Belsize chassis (and model): Unidentified chassis, possibly WW1. - Pre WW2 vehicles - HMVF - Historic Military Vehicles Forum
  12. ...and there's a big sign on the back saying its a K3 🙂
  13. Just like here: Renault tank transporter - Pre WW2 vehicles - HMVF - Historic Military Vehicles Forum
  14. Have a chat with the Norfolk MVT group - one of their members has a Humber 8cwt they rebuilt from a post war woodie conversion a bit like yours: https://www.nmvg.org/about Nice project!! And with a PTO an FFW version as well.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. Dukes - 10 September https://app.dukes-auctions.com/en/auction/1004-classic-cars-and-transport-memorabilia

  19. Berliet CBA: https://www.prewarcar.com/301210-pair-of-cba-trucks-with-very-rare-tipping-system
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. I think you mean to link to this one https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/205189024
