Great shot of this iconic old vehicle Ted – my mother would have recognised this one. She was a district nurse in WWII in a rural area and she told me that if she saw a military convoy coming along behind her she used to stop, jump out quick and lift the bonnet on her old Austin 7 and look helpless ! Quite often ’ tail-end-charlie ’ used to stop and offer her a tow. She saved heaps of petrol this way for her own use off duty……lol !
Thanks for dropping in and the comment. Mother was on the ball . . . lol. – Ted

Nice one Ted, one of ours as one of theirs
Thank you David for the comment. – Ted
Wow! Way cool!
Thanks Trenton. I used to own one of these when I was in the Military Vehicle Club I ran in the 70/80’s. This one was a surprise at the War Weekend in the German section. – Ted
Remember riding round in the back of one of these at various local and military shows :)
I bet you do Joy. I remember it well. We did a few miles in it to shows didn;t we. I wonder where it is now? – Ted
