At least five new style WMIK Land Rovers (partially armoured) heading south on the M11 just before the junction with the M25 - the drivers wearing a mixture of Army Combat Helmets and civvie motorcycle helmets. I wonder where they were going? They looked really nice!!

Hi, I'm glad to say it has gone to a good home, sorry I outbid you but it took me right back to my childhood!! it's going for a light restoration and then will be used for what it was made for and als

Fort Stewart in Georgia I believe. This is one of the Normandy recovered ones which were on display at Commes until recently.

Two jeeps being towed on the M4 toward London today. One on a trailer, and one on a trangular tow bar.

 

Also an RB44 and silver car trailing a supacat ATMP at the garage just off black cat roundabout (A1/A421). Very nice they looked too. I nearly turned the same colour green with envy.

On the move from Duxford to Coventry Transport Museum are a Saracen and a Humber Pig.

 

Also on their way to a new home at a air museum in Norfolk are a Austin Champ and a Morris armoured car.

It's a real shame to see the Morris go. I wonder what we'll get in to replace it.

 

It certainly is. They were used as airfield defence for USAAF airfields, so quite an appropriate exhibit I'd have thought. Of course I have no doubt the decision maker was aware of this... :whistle:

To be fair it had been sat rotting in one of the stores at Duxford. If it's going to a new home where it will be given a new lease of life then that can only be a good thing.
