Readers Photos

We received an email from Raymond Pritchard asking if we would be interested in seeing some of the vehicles he served with in his time in the army, and see if you can guess our reply !!!! Raymond kindly scanned and emailed us 15 fantastic photos, especially rare to see colour photos of the incredible Thornycroft Antar.
Below is the narrative that Raymond sent with his photos. Please enjoy !

“The Antars are mainly 617 (Polish) Tank Transporter Sqdn – they had an overnight stay at Senelager – while the remaining Antars are from 3 Tank Transporter Sqdn. Bedford RL 3 ton was with 3 Sqdn RCT (Singapore). The Alvis Stalwarts were issued brand new, no mileage, to 33 Sqdn RCT (Bunde) There were a nice glossy bronze clean. This is the era when “most” army vehicles were kept clean with car polish; Bedfords, Stalwarts, staff cars, etc. When I was on Centurion and Chieftain tanks, polishing was different. We used kerosene/petrol and oil and buffed up with cotton waste”
