WC's in Africa.


Recommended Posts

Morning all.



Just a quick one.


I read at the D-Day museum yesterday that the first Dodge WC's were supplied to the British and used for the North Africa campaign.


Can anyone shed any light on this and would be interested to know what colour they were sprayed.

Hi Jack

As far as I know the Brittisch forces got Canadian built Dodges.

Looking a lot like the 1/2 ton US built pick up Dodges like the WC 21.


The US forces used 1/2 ton Pick up's in Africa when they arrived in late 1942.
