A Different Way of Lifting
« on: September 15, 2013, 09:58:40 PM »
The following photos show Land Rovers being unloaded in Vietnam.

Although the photos show three different methods in use, one method has been undertaken in two slightly different ways.

Method #1 - Use of Lifting Platform



Method #2 - Use of Lifting Hooks

   

Method #3 - Use of Lifting Bars

This photo show the use of lifting bars placed under the front and rear springs. A rope each side between the two is used to keep the bars from spreading and dropping the Land Rover. The bar appears to be unprotected. With no protection, the Land Rover would most probably be adverse to moving around given that the bars would be made of steel. Bar appears to be flexing slightly and most probably made of solid steel or pipe.



The following photos show the same method in use but this time each bar has a considerable amount of protective material wrapped around it. I am not sure if this is to protect the Land Rover or to prevent the metal bar from sliding around on the springs or both. My suspicions point to stabilization rather than protection. For this method, the bar appears to be solid steel or square/rectangle hollow section.

Looking at these photos, I see the landys are masked up I assume for painting prior to return to Aus?

Masked up for the sea voyage: they can travel exposed on what was the flight deck, so the masking provides some protection (though I'm not sure how much!)

Nice pics.

Thanks Mike!

I thought painting because of the outer edge masking on the windscreen

your explanation makes more sense, cheers!

Can anyone have a stab at the ARN of the GS with the winch?

It looks like there are about three shots of it, and it is very new at the time.

It looks to me like 178 348 or 349, a bit hard to tell.

Must have been late in our deployment. 1970 model.

Neither of these ARNs shows up in the vietnam ARN list at this stage,  maybe we can add another one!

Scott,

I thought 349 as well, but it's a grainy photo taken at night, so a bit hard to make out....

Is Tommy still around, what is the origin of the photos I wonder?
