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 MV’s: a Humvee and several British MV’s, 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 I’m not sure. And the Dodges intrigue me. Were they surplussed out in England? But the chrome on the Dodges doesn’t fit a former MV.

Anybody out there an authority on British MV’s?

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.

Cheers

The 6x6 is as mentioned above a Duro 11 Mobile command communications vehicle . The part with all the louvers is an aircon unit to keep all the coms cool when locked down . Cummins engine , allison trans
The landrover is a 130 "Pulse" ambulance . Then you have a Champ with rolls b40 engine , Then a Mk1 Ferret scout car with rolls B60 engine .

They are all enthusiast ex military stuff except the "Day Van", probably a member of the displaying club?.
