Recommended Posts

Starting the thread again as it appears to have disappeared during "Black Sunday".

Post away any pics of wartime Morris Commercial and its variants.

 

Couple of nice colour shots of CS8- Ostfront.

Exactly right Chris. The number is 664 before mine. Only about 1200 were built. There is in fact another survivor. But it is sadly neglected in a museum in Texas. Ron

I've posted this photo in various places before but not here, I think. The start of this thread seems a suitable place for it.

 

This is a wartime picture of one of the original 1935 Mk1 15 cwts with the Clayton Still radiator before the bonnet line was altered.

Secondly, are there any figures or numbers of the amount of CS8s lost at Dunkirk?

Somewhere in there, or maybe it was the Tank museum's photo? Is a Morris fitted as a DF truck. Wooden body with horizontal attena fore and aft. Any idea on dates of those vehicles?

Havent come across that photo, have a rummage around for it Tony.
