    Default Help identify British MVs

    My son is stationed in England with the Air Force. Twice now his base has opened up for an informal vehicle show. This morning there were several MVs: a Humvee and several British MVs, besides many antique civilian cars. And there was a Mustang. I figure an Airman had it shipped over when he got stationed in England.

    I recognize the Ferret, a Land Rover, and what looks like a British Mighty Mite. One might be a CJ6 ambulance? But Im not sure. And the Dodges intrigue me. Were they surplussed out in England? But the chrome on the Dodges doesnt fit a former MV.

    Anybody out there an authority on British MVs?

    Austin Champ between Land Rover and Humvee. Rolls Royce B40 engine. Green box thing (6x6) may be a Supercat?

    The 6x6 is a Mowag Duro. As stated above, the Mite-type vehicle is an Austin Champ. I have one, at least one other SS member, Mkcoen has one. Standard British Army Land Rover ambulance next to the Duro.
