  1. Danny, I was fortunate enough to be on the LTF XXX Corps tour in my Dodge D15. Unfortunately the tour organisers had some problems with the Belgian authorities the day before the southern route start. The organisers stated that tracked vehicle permits were withdrawn/not issued by the Belgian Authorities, so the impressive array of armour on the tour had to start in Holland on an alternative route. We were lucky enough to be with the small contingent permitted to drive in Belgium from Lommel over Joes bridge to start the tour. I have linked my video of the main column waiting in holla
  2. This video on my Youtube account shows us passing half of the column ready to start the event at Lommel in Belgium https://youtu.be/--6a8rPB2KI
  3. We managed to get there. Had an awesome time with our Canadian Dodge D15. It was humbling to see some much brit and commonwealth gear in one place.
  4. Hi Dean, I had some luck getting a contact last year with the Nowegian Army to help research my 1943 WC54 ambulance. I think you might have better dialogue with them if you have the chassis number as well as the hood number. Anyway, contact details below. Good luck and let us know how you get on.

  5. Hi folks, my dodge d15 has the standard raised bar above the bumper that stands in front of the radiator as with most cmp wartime vehicles. I had always assumed this bar was to protect the radiator and grill from big debris, but if that is the case, why is the bar mounted on leaf springs?

  7. Thanks for the feedback Pete. in the 2 and a half years since I posted here I have found this truck and just completed its purchase and transport to the UK. Alex, the supporting registration documents and feedback from the Belgian owner confirm your feedback about its French army history. I'll post some more photos and info soon - I am just in the throws of applying for a UK registration for it.
  8. Hi all. I've just got back from the National Archives in London where I was looking at the War Diaries from my Grandfather's RASC unit, which served in North Africa, Italy and Austria. As a Jeep owner, I know the interest in finding war service history of specific vehicles is usually a pipe dream, but I uncovered a full audit of the vehicles in this GT company. It includes WD, and Order Nos, but more importantly, in some cases the Chassis numbers. Do any of you good folks out there in MVT land know if any of these are still knocking around? Would love to hear from you. Thanks, Simon I

  10. Wow Tony, thanks for the advert - the Hitch and Wheel config is exactly the same. <3 the forums for helping find out what what you've got. I think Ill progress to a bit of wood replacement and an OD coat of paint so I can use it to tow my canvas to next summers events.
  11. I picked this up last week, I havent a clue where to start. There's no data plate that I can find. David, I see your resto has progressed well, I might need some tips if you dont mind me sending you a PM... First job is to source a pintle hitch ring that will fit my MB Jeep.
