Vehicle Description

Fred has owned this jeep for about a quarter of a century now. He originally recovered it from a south coast scrap yard and took around 18 months to rebuild with the inevitable help of Tony Sudds. When initially recovered, it was in an appalling condition requiring major work in every department.

The jeep was used by the British Army as a stretcher vehicle with the spare wheel moved to one side and no extra jerry can on the back. The screen was down flat with two light tubular stretchers, one above the passenger seat. It was complete with two butler lights on the wings and a bosch horn.

Fred's restoration was into USA livery in remembrance of his pal Larry Russell of Kansas City MO, who was a ball gunner on a B17 'Sleepytime Gal', he completed around 30 missions with the 8AFF 385 BG 550 Sqn. based at Gt Ashfield.
