RAF Police car


Recommended Posts

Evening all, 

 

just a quick question, I have recenty purchased a 2008 Vauxhall Astra estate, ex white fleet, ex RAF Police, and I was wondering if anybody, by chance, has a photo of it at Cosford, or Shawbury, I am assuming she served at either of these 2 bases as all the contracted repairs etc were carried out at Telford. The original registration was DU58BWH. 

 

The 2 interior photos show where the lightbar and aerial holes were filled in on decommisioning, and happiliy discovered when I removed the roof lining.

You may find that it may have served anywhere in the country, but went to Telford as there was an Army Base Repair Organisation at Donnington. It is (or was) standard practice to send similar equipments to one base for repair and overhaul. Armour to Ludgershall, aircraft to St. Athan, and so on. Telford is now run by Babcock as a contractor to the Defence Support Group. Of course someone may be able to help you more with your question.

the car was part of the white fleet, so servicing etc was in Telford, not Donnington, (eg Halfords is listed for tyres etc)
