  1. Not really saying that In my option the M was never used by the military
  2. As far as I know WM is wide track model M I have two reprint publications of USA equipment used during WW2 and the M is not mentioned The larger HD is listed (Tractor heavy M1) is listed
  3. Interesting, I don't believe they were used by the military, larger All is maybe but not the M Have never been able to find a military one in a book There is at least one in preservation painted in military colours but really not sure of its provenance
  4. Troop Carrying Vehicle. Possibly three tonners
  5. Interesting question 1. If the T is registered as prior to 1960 and is used unladen and towing an unladen trailer then it can be driven on a CAT B licence. If used laden the a vocational licence is required 2. Did you inform the DVLA of your heart problem? If you did they would have suspended your vocational licence and the organised after a period of time a medical examination ( at their cost) to ascertain whether they would give you your licence back. This usually means an ECG treadmill test 3. If your licence is returned it will probably only be for three years before another medical 4. If you didn't tell the DVLA then unfortunately you have technically broken the law
  6. Interesting question I have known the DVLA require a NOVA declaration for vehicles that are of British origin The DVLA look for the NOVA marker against the chassis number if its not there then they can refuse the application
  7. He always has interesting stuff to sell!
  8. Suggest you speak to the verification officer of the MVT or IMPS before you do anything They will give you all the advice and help you need to deregister.
  9. Try Albert Jaggers, they do this sort of thing Google may be your friend
  10. It is/was for sale on eBay recently
  11. Next project half way complete The 1/35 IBG models Scammell R100 gun tractor! Fully agree about the downward slope, next up will be the Scammell Pioneer tank transporter, with tank of course
  12. Exactly how I understood the production went!! Must be one of those as they would say on a well known internet auction site "very rare" to have been produced in 1960!!
  13. Southbound M1 near the A38 a Mk 2 Antar ballast tractor restored on D Crouch low loader
  14. Think you need a copy of the military vehicle bible! Bart Vanderveens Fighting Vehicle Directory. Out of print now but full of info I have a copy to sell if you are interested
  15. Says he hadn't had a form so was thinking about W&P I have his number if you need it
  16. Interesting The way I have always understood it is that if the vehicle was designed as a fire appliance and is still capable of fighting a fire the itvis exempt testing and plating (check vehicles exempt from test and plate) It is also exempt road fund licence regardless of whether it is in private use or not However if post 1960 with a mam over over 3.5 tonnes then a vocational licence ( either C1 or C) will be required to drive it. Even though the vehicle is exempt from rfl it will love still need to be registered and back in the day would have to carry a tax disc If the vehicle falls into historic class then of course it can be taxed as that. Suggest for absolute clarification you have a look at the Fire Service Preservation Group Facebook page
  17. Simply, pre 1960 no problem on CAT B licence After 1960 if over 3500 kg laden CAT C1 over 7500kg laden CAT C That's regardless whether they are carrying water or not
  18. Interesting. One was owned by Derecke Lambe and the other by a bloke from Yorkshire. Derecke was going to restore them. He passed away about 10 years ago
