Model T in Africa

Post by cj » 06 Mar 2008 20:31


In Anderson's 'Forgotten Front' I recall Henry Ford's famous model T mentioned often. Anyone know when the British began recieving this valuable transports? before or after the Kilimanjaro Offensive? Did the Portuguese or Belgians ever get a hold of any? particularly the Portuguese after the Germans crossed the Rovuma?
