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 !!!

This posting is in memory of a good work friend and colleague, Norman Yeomans of Stafford. Norman was the stores manager at the catering company I worked for and was known affectionately by all as ‘Norman the Storeman’. His joke was that he loaded up the food and drink onto the lorries to go to the various corporate hospitality events, to give them ‘a ride around the country’.  We got talking about army things one day and the next day he brought in an album of photos showing his time doing National Service in the Army in Germany 1946. I was able to take copies of them and although they aren’t fantastically clear photos, I thought you may like to see them nevertheless. Sadly, Norman passed away a few months after I’d left the company, after a  short illness.

These are for you Norman, old friend.
