Hi all!
Due to my weak memory I can't recall exactly but I'm almost positive these pictures were taken from this forum. Regretfully I wasn't able to find them again to see the comments (if any).
However, I was inspired to make a model of this Morris CS8 complete with the trailer but I need to know little more about the outfit. Can somebody tell me the approximate time and place of the pictures? My guess is France, second half of 1940. Your help will be highly appreciated.

Hi Bill,

finally (after a long and often disappointing search) I´ve found the ID of the truck You posted some time ago, but only with the help of Holger Erdmann: it´s an Austrian Fross-Büssing. Holger told me, that it is most probably a Fross-Büssing type 4000. 200 exemplars of the type 4000 were ordered by the OKH in 1940 as horse transporters. But most probably they were used as normal lorries. This type was propelled by a Büssing-NAG LD5 diesel engine with 5 cylinders.
Thank You very much to Holger and to his great site "kfz der Wehrmacht".

Regards

Bert

Nice one Francy, Its estimated that one-third of all Africa Korps supply transports were of captured vechiles from the British or Commonwealth forces at one time or another.

Staying with the Africa Korps, an Italian tank - then Aussie (australischer) and now German. The good Rommel always said that nothing in the desert is wasted.

Hi, dear Francy,

thank You for posting again very interesting pics of Beute trucks. I think they could be GMC ACK 353, ordered by the French government in 1939, delivered in 1940 and then used by the Germans as Beute trucks. I´ll post such a truck with French soldiers and French license number (source: Vauvillier: L´automobile sous l´uniforme). But I´m not quite sure, because there are differences (for exa<mple the cab). Maybe one of our experts can help.

Regards

Bert
