    Vehicles - 30th April 1944 - E Veh Co .jpg Hi,

    see attached an extract from the War Diary of "E" Vehicle Company of April 1944. Would anyone know what was meant by "A" vehicles and "B" vehicles? I see this classification used a lot in the diaries.

    For information, the "E" Vehicle Company became the 38th Vehicle Company from May 1944 onwards.

    A vehicles are generally Armoured vehicles (though there are armoured trucks which are B vehicles). B vehicles are normal unarmoured transport vehicles (but see above).
