Within AULRO there is an image of a 'Dinky' aka 90" SAS and in the background is a ? Mk3 4 x 4
Hopefully a link
Makes you wonder how n why it got there, cheers Dennis :)

The handle behind the door doesn't look right (too short) for an Inter, nor does the seating arrangement on the tray.
The Mk3/4 had the tray fitted snugly to the rear of the cab whereas the F1/2 had jerry can holders etc fitted between the tray and cab, and the tray (same tray used across the board up to 5 tonners) side pieces consisted of two pieces, each holding three legs for the seats/sides, whereas the one in the shot has an odd number of side posts.
Someone with a better knowledge of Brit vehicles will possibly be able to identify it further. Bedford T type perhaps?
Regards
Glen

I can't place a bedford etc with the right features.  Still looks like an inter to me, and looks like you can see the exhaust guard in front of the front axle.

Definitely not a Bedford, looks like an Inter', canopy frame is different style to anything we had in British Army. Any clues on where this photo was taken in UK?

Doesn't look right to me either, the wheel looks too dished and there is a hood bow missing.  Then there's the box at the front of the tray and the mudguard looks too shallow.

But the top of the cab looks right and the exhaust guard correct too.  The handle near the door looks the same as the ones on the front corners of the Mk3.

Who knows!

(Does anyone know if Who will be along to let us know?).  :o

Apparently it was at the Imperial War Museum Dunsfold, they had a display of vehicles from all over the globe, Ozdunc (AULRO) took the image, he supplied me with the information, well to me it sure looks like an International from what I can see, cheers Dennis :)

Hi Dennis,
That is IWM at Duxford (not Dunsfold !). The truck in the background made me think it was something Russian captured in Gulf War 1 .............. and that is what it is, a GAZ 66 2 ton truck! Check this link for a photo of the actual vehicle ;


cheers Richard

Thanks Richard,

So it is an international truck (Soviet) but not an International (Harvester) truck! 

I was correct on the mudguards, wheels and tray then.

Diana :)

BTW: Is the name of the place "Duxford" pronounced "ducksford" or "duceford"?  Us illiterate Aussies would say the former, but in the Battle of Brittan movie they say the latter.

Diana,
The correct way is "ducks ford". The Battle of Britain movie has a lot of mistakes in it!

You lot need to brush up on your truck identification..... More home work needed. :)

Whats needed is everyone should buy a real camera instead of a phone camera LOL and having never seem the Russian truck except front on, and it does bear strong resemblance to our Inter on the rear of the cab, add to that it is in the image well n truly in the background, cheers Dennis

We could have a quiz based on odd angle shots of vehicles and trying to identify them !

Can you say that this truck doesn't look similar to the one at Duxford, given the clues we had?
