    Vanderveen mentions that Guy did make a searchlight truck on the PE chassis, but it wasn't 4x4.

    The searchlight truck is a Guy PE 4x2, i have only ever seen it in this role and as a early vehicle with around 800 built some would have gone to France. I have a few bits on it and will dig them and post sometime
    cheers

    Here are a few more BEF vehicle pictures from the Topfoto site that I haven't seen before , the disabled Matilda in front of the WW1 Diorama museum is interesting.

    Love them Humber Snipe heavy utilities , they were a very high quality expensive car at the time, does anyone know what level of officer you had to be to get one?

    Do you have any pictures of the Morris CD 6 wheeler staff car? I have a couple but it does not seem to have appeared very often. Not like the Humber.

    Thanks for posting these two. I have not seen that picture with the triangular marking before, although I have seen a picture taken from the other side of the same vehicle. Do you know where I might find the original?

    For Craig - I believe this IWM picture was taken in France with a broken down vehicle about to be evacuated. My guess is it is with 5 Medium Regt and the 1 Corps formation sign cannot be seen or has not yet been added.

    I wonder if the 'Ruler of Bhopal' has still got his 2 seater sports version as below !
