Mystery Object No.22


Recommended Posts

Several questions to this one!

 

1. What are these men looking at?

2. Who is the man in civies?

3. Where were these pictures taken?

4. When was this?

 

There are other questions I could ask, but if I ask them it will then allow most of the answers to the above to fall into place!

Clive,

 

Location could be Bordon or Arborfield and I have now spotted that in the first picture, under the tent can be seen the rear of body / tailboard, of a 1 ton truck, either an Austin K9, Morris MRA1 or Humber 1 ton. There is a Craftsman working on a small mobile workshop trailer in front of the truck.

 

The Foreign gentleman could be King of Jordan ? (a stab in the dark here).

on a small mobile Generator - nope

 

Study everything in the photos, there are two significant clues as to the role of this unit.

It looks to me like an upper section of a 27' mast, but I doubt it can be because you'd be able to see the lower sections telescoped at the bottom of the picture.

 

But I'd guess it is something similar.

Clive,

 

With the Humber 1 ton GS truck, RTR personnel, black coveralls on the mechanic, it has to be something to do with Malkara support equipment. Now therre was a mobile crane specially for handling guided weapons, a Thornycroft Nubianwith a Bedford engine, this could be the outrigger leg in the photo. It was used by the School of Artillery in the mid 1960's. Which brings me to the location, Larkhill ?
