We have been sitting on this for some time, we have most of the bits, Australia had 18 dozer conversions however I only have the WDN numbers for eleven of them, WDN 6940, 7352, 7384, 7386, 10277, 17359, 18766, 18771, 27732, 37159 and ours 46101. 3 were sold at public auction in the 1950s complete with the blades. we really don't have any intention to do anything with it apart from operate it when we can along with our other vehicles.

The blade assembly's were made "Britstand" and supplied as kits that were fitted in the field, mainly in the pacific. the first 6 were cable operated with a jeep engine used to power the winch, the next 6 used the same jeep motor but were hydraulic and the last 6 of which 3 survive including ours are hydraulic been driven off the main engine pack.
