    I found these WD numbers in the 1944 war diary of 6 RSF. Any clues to makes?

    3-ton:
    4891770
    4891780
    4891783

    15-cwt:
    4960241
    4961411
    5340549

    I think the 15-cwt trucks may be Fordsons.

    Regards

    Tom

    Tom, Bingo !

    Serials L4891340 - L4892639 - Contract V4637 - Austin Lorry 3 ton 4x4 GS

    The 15cwts are indeed listed as Ford.

    Rich,

    Bless you, kind sir! Now for the brigade workshops next to see if there are any references to them proving problematic once on the continent.

    Regards

    I truly admire your dedication to this cause Tom. Never in the field of historical research has so much attention been paid to such an ugly lorry !
