    Just looking through these pics again and the one numbered E-25254 has a Scammel with what looks like the 23rd Armoured Brigade liver bird emblem on it's front and is carrying a Valentine tank.

    This could be Tripoli Victory Parade which took place around the end of January 1943, as 40 RTR (23rd Armoured Brigade) were the first armour to get there on 23 Jan 43.

    Almost seems a shame to break one up, Rick.
    How rare is the trailer in its own right?

    i don't think there are any other survivors. if the main body/turntable is still at nelson greens yard where i left it then i will collect them and return one or both to working condition. i'd like to give one to the new REME museum in lyneham

    Great drawing. Thanks

    That's a White 920, I think. One of my favorite vehicles

    Would it be possible to get them scanned up in a res version, I'm currently prepping a REME type WW2 diorama, and would love as much info/reference matgeril as possible. Cheers Dai Buckler (Fomer AQMS Vehicles)

  17. I've just updated the "Tank Recovery" album to correct the pics that were still inverted horizontally. They are Nos. 12, 13, 20, 26 & 32.
