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 also showed joining the a Scania 82 day cab unit, 113 day cab unit and a 112 sleeper unit along with a FL10 hiab unit and a FM10 unit which are all retired and in various states of restoration.  

Do you intend putting her back in green, or your own colours? Either way do post a couple of pictures

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

Spotted on a farm North of York today.

No idea what or whether it lives here or not.

 

I am assuming it is ex military somewhere.

Spotted what looks like a Militant to me the other day, at a location that was once a scrapyard full of all sorts of military vehicles but was almost entirely cleared some years ago. 
I was too busy to stop and take a photo but here is an image from Google Street View.
No idea as to condition or whether it is for sale but if anybody wants to save it please PM me for the location.

Hey Mtskull,

I guess that you are talking about the Brickworks in Bingley? Yeh they had allsorts of stuff there in the 80's. I'm not sure, but I think the Militant is the only MV left.

Dave, you are correct. When I first went there in search of Karrier Bantam spares in about 1980 I was gobsmacked by the variety of types and ages of vehicles in there. Boats and aircraft, too. All cleared very quickly in the late 80’s, sadly.

Yeh, it was a great place to look round, I think it was 1983 I went there for Jeep spares. There was an article in Wheels and Tracks about the CMP'S. Yeh nowt there now only the Militant, shame

Apparently the Milly was sent there in the first place because it's been rolled and now is a bit lop sided, and really only good for parts. However, scrap geezer still thinks it is made of gold bars and wants a fortune for it
