Ok I know this is a bit of an old chess nut but I am still trying to find out what contract my MW was built under.

Early contracts ran =

294/T/7729

294/T/8102

294/T/3733

Can anyone tell me given that my chassis number is 2947 which contract was it made under? Also after trawling the net and reference books looking for images of MW's in the early part of WWII have come across vehicle census numbers on the bonnets as =

Z 3927138 which was an MWG maybe the first 50 odd built in sept 39 ? plus

Z3927765

Then the next most common census number being in the Z411 range could these have been built under the T 8102 contract ?

These are the numbers I have so far =

Z 4110272

Z 4110324

Z 4113763

Z 4113825

Z 4116149

Z 4116340

Z 4117932

Z 4119498

All these numbers were taken from period photos of MW's with early type windscreens etc mostly in and around Dunkirk.

I know its unlikely for me to know the census number for my Bedford but I would like to know its contract number and if it may of had a number starting with 411

Many thanks in anticipation for any info on this subject.
