Working at the Royal Logistic Corps Museum


Recommended Posts

Some 2 years ago I answered an appeal for the RLC Museum to help restore a "Dunkerque" Lorry. This vehicle was , in fact , a 1939 Morris Commercial 8 cwt truck. Altogether six volunteers were asked to restore this vehicle given four hours each Sunday from March to mid May in time for the 70th Anniversary of Dunkerque.

On examination it turned out the Master and Slave cylinders were seized, the Aquavac and ignition systems were "shot",exhaust valves were burnt , water pump leaking, exhaust system u/s , trackrod bent , front mudguards rusted away and the wiper motor was missing ! It also needed painting the correct colour. This finally took fifteen months !!

Since then Andy Robertshaw has "Acquired" 3 motorbykes, two "BAT" guns, a Scammel "Horse" , a "Snatch" Landrover , a Bedford Tanker and a Crossley 3 Ton Half Track !This latter really is only a rolling chassis with no tracks , no body or wings,so is going to present quite a challenge ! ( This is the one from the Army Museum noted on the Crossley blogs here !!)
