Morning Steve:

Course correction first, your number three from the last series is a Bedford as the caption indicates.
The last, and a nice photo it is, I think is actually a Canadian Dodge D60S or D60L The placement of the main headlamps and the little peek we get of the grille would indicate that. Close to the contemporary Ford 098t but the grille was different on the Ford.
Keep them coming!!!
Cheers
Bill

Hi Steve:
The British vehicle in photo 4 behind the Skoda I think I can now ID as an Albion but I do not know yet which model. It can be identified by the unique "X" on the door.

Hi Steve:
Still more cleaning up.
In the first photo, the second vehicle is a 1939 or 1940 Dodge most likely a 1.5 tonner, of Dutch or Belgian origin based on the cab design. The last photo is quite interesting as it is a 100% American 1940 Dodge 1.5 tonner including the unique brush guard over the headlamps. The US had them in N Africa I think and the French and Russians also got some. Even the Brits got some ex-French contract vehicles of this type after the fall of France. If the photo was taken in N Africa it could be ex US, if in Russia, it would be from one of the other countries I guess.
Cheers
Bill

want that photo to be mine..

Post by cmpnorge » 14 Jul 2005 23:09

Thought I was going to show you all that photo, but Sander you beat me to it :-)

I have put in a bid on it, and do hope I can get it. My bids are placed under the name "cmpnorge".
And of course I will share high res to those who needs it for publishing.
I do know the problems of publishing photos, because I am the editor of the magazine "Mud & Snow" which is the magazine of the Norwegian MV-society.
So if anyone have photos they might share, I will be glad. No photos will be used without permition settled in front, and as payment I can only (at the time) offer a copy or two of the magazine.

to much..

Post by cmpnorge » 17 Jul 2005 12:32

The photo of the Bedford MW Umbauwagen with SS license plates has reached 26,5 euros. My last bid was 26....
I need to think a little before placing a new bid, because I think this is way to much for a photo.

Well, here is another beute, this time "the other way round" as it is used by some britts...
