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.

About 08.15 a Jackall on the northbound A189 in Northumberland. Sorry no picture.

A189   ,   a good few years ago - I cruised past a convoy (Dutch I think) ,  through the Tyne Tunnel , I stalked them as far as far as I could  - I was heading  -Jesmond.  Expecting them to steer west towards Otterburn but they were obviously heading north ?    Unforgettable -  S1 Minerva types , later Series and Defender  !

I don't see anything of MOD interest on A68 at all now.    I understood these heavier than TUM were now in air-conditioned storage  ?       TUL/TUM in main for fuel economy , then better still Wolf XD that they seem to be demobbing.  I understand leased Jap. on mission creep into the green fleet, has me puzzled what the Wolf fleet is going to be replaced with ,  such as radio  Clansman then Bowman having been so well integrated !

There is very little air conditioned storage on most MoD bases unless you call the building that we store Jackals and Coyotes in "air conditioned" due to the holes in the roof.

Leased Japanese 4x4s are used in the White fleet as general runabouts, not on exercises or operations.

As to what will replace TUM, TUL and Wolf, who knows, you can bet your bottom dollar that it won't be the new Defender.

Saw This at a Bus and Coach Auction in Sussex, today.

20200125_090612.thumb.jpg.65115d0991c9e01daeaf47dec4c61438.jpg

Formerly 66 GT 58  Not bad condition, starts and runs well, all works and most of the tools and kit is still on board.  I did have a couple of bids on it, but price went over my available budget.  Finally went for £6500 on the hammer, but with buyers premium and VAT to go on top of that.  Total cost to it's new owner is about £8500.  Hope it's gone to a good home
