    Hi all,

    Anyone have anymore info and pictures of this type of ambulance? I like the two tone fenders.
    Looks like suicide doors on the front too.

    I wonder what the occasion was to have an audience of civilians watching a warship coming into a berth. My initial thought was the arrival of the unknown warrior but the location is not Dover and the warship isn't the Verdun, as far as I can tell.

    Any offers?
