MoD 1960′s Collection

Here we have a fascinating collection of MoD (Ministry of Defence) official photos of a whole range of military vehicles in service. Not to the same standard as modern digital photographs, but they have that same certain patina that old 1960′s military things have. I know the original photos that Miliblog has been lucky to purchase for you have that certin whiff of old musty paper, with a hint of dampness that we find so good. Although part of the MoD, they all have AM and a crown stamped on the back, which is Air Ministry. A bit unusual when most of the photos are British Army !!!

One by one we’ll be scanning this old collection to share with you. When we discovered them, we just had to have them to add to the Miliblog archives !!! So please enjoy them as we did too !!!
