  1. Hi guys. I’ve got some of the excellent “In Detail” books focusing on Military Land Rovers. These are photographic portrayals of various Airborne, Special Ops and Up-Armoured Military Land Rovers in current collections and each book goes in to a lot of detail. The book titles are as follows: “Airborne Landies in Detail” which is £21.00 plus postage (UK £3.78, EU: £9.80, ROW £13.90) “Special Operations Landies in Detail” which is £24.00 plus postage (UK £4.70, EU £13.43, ROW £19.18) “Up-Armoured Landies in Detail” at £19.00 plus postage (UK £3.78, EU £9.8
  2. Greetings. Hope someone can tell me what the actual intended use of a Royal Enfield Flying Flea motorcycle (WD/RE) would be in a combat zone. In this regard does anyone know of an account describing their actual use? It probably seems obvious. But consider: there are pictures of them being loaded into gliders, but not many photos (if any) of them in use after landing, except in what appear to be posed photos at practice or publicity events. It is often said that they were delivered (mostly by glider rather than parachute, apparently) with the British airborne. One view seems to be that there w
  3. Having restored 1944 Airborne 10cwt No1 Mk2 Trailer and an 1944 10cwt Lightweight Water Bowser (posted photos previously on HMVF), I've now got a new project. Have been lucky to find a 1944 Lightweight Electrical Repair trailer (thanks Richard). I believe it is one of the trailers developed by the REME section of the Airborne Forces Development Centre based at Amesbury Abbey (Wilts) from 1943 in cooperation with the REME Central Workshops at Old Dalby (ref. Rob van Meel's British Airborne Jeeps). The trailer data plate shows it to be "Electrical Repair Trailer. No.1 Mk II. Cont. No.
  4. Hi, a few questions to all you trailer buffs. I have recently acquired a WW2 10cwt lightweight trailer to tow behind my Airborne Jeep. It was originally fitted with the early type hitch with the arms attached to the chassis, but has been retrofitted with the later hitch (but with smaller towing eye). My first question; is this designated a No1 Mk1 or is it just an early Mk2? The second question; what lighting would the trailer have originally been fitted with during wartime service? Did they just have have the convoy light underneath, or did they also have the MT tail lights? The brackets
  5. Hi, I have just bought an 80 Watt charging set for my 22 set, but it is missing the spark plug. Can anyone tell me what the correct spark plug is? A picture would be really useful as I can't see how the plug fits securely to the screened lead. Thanks.
