  1. Wondering if any ex vet has any experience or photos of Stalwarts used in British Army service other than BAOR or UK. I know that two went to Thailand for Operation Mudlark trials, and one of those saw time in Belize. So wonder if anyone has any photos or information please
  2. I'll look in to that. Because 94ET45 is parked outside Leconfield, I wonder if it's still all classed as restricted - despite most of it being on eBay - well, scans of scans anyway
  3. Thanks, I forgot the CES as well. I take it the P 400-409 is the EMER code

  7. Adam, do you have a photo of the FV number on this trailer? thanks
  8. We received MJ GS wagons when our 6 MK Winch Wagons went back to RAOC in 82 and 83. I think you'll find that the MJ started with the H registration letters - HG, etc. I was Royal Engineers in Germany, so we got the new GS kit after UK units and Infantry. You'll have to ask some ex RAOC about allocation priority Just reading your description of the MK verse the MJ The change was more than just the engine. The MJ has the steel cat walk on the roof to stop the roof collapsing in when walking on it to apply the cam net. The collapsing in and pushing out again made the metal crack and
  9. I recall in the early eighties there was talk of Bedford trying to develop a 6x6 to replace the Stolly, as the amphibious requirement had gone and they wanted something easier to maintain and cheaper to run. As I recall, they couldn't get it to work as the chassis kept twisting when going over knife edges. If this vehicle is based on that experiment, (if that experiment really happened even) then the 5th wheel could be a decoy to confuse people. The alternative being development of a heavy off road towing unit to replace the Scammell Crusader. Bedford was of course killed off by Maggie
  10. Hi all I learnt to drive on a Bedford TK in 1980, at the Royal Engineers Driver Training facility at Church Crookham. In 1981 I went to the RCT Driver Training camp at Leconfield, where I took my class 2 on a Foden 8x4 LMLC with the 4 man crew cab, and then completed the HMLC course. Makes of vehicles driven whilst in the RE included; Ford, British Leyland, Bedford, Foden, Alvis, Aveling Barford, and a Danish Army Mercedes for 2 minutes. If anyone has photos of the 4 man cab LMLC then please drop me a line. Photo of the TK outside my parents house in Weymouth on one of our jau
