SMH caption says "An INTERFET convoy passes a man on a bicycle at Dili port, East Timor, in preparation for return to Australia" "2000."

RFSV or SRV as per orig. issue,  51-759 is leading the packet.
Is this the first evidence of this variant in ET? There was Crocodile 2012, some of which ran in ET as well. Hopefully there are more photos.

Definitely original RFSV. I had heard reports that a small number of them went over. There were also SRV as well. Welby might have something to add.
Kind Regards, Barefoot Dave.

I informed ReignCKD about the 51-759 pic last night. Made his day.
I found the pic looking at search returns for East Timor - I was looking for another pic of 50-169 which Stevie purchased before Christmas (his first Landy). Attached is a pic of Stevie 15 years ago in 2002 (red Tee) with his brother, and the AWM file of 50-169 in-service at Darwin, preparing to embark to East Timor Sept 1999.

Hello Dave, Happy New Year to you.

Closest i can add is the SAS 'borrowed' a few Pilbara Regiment RFSV's  in the early stages of Operations in Timor, but i can't say that they went OS.

Nothing to add other than an RFSV made its way to Bouganville that i know of, off topic i know.

Best wishes,

Welby

G'day Mate.
Happy New Year, also.

All part of the murky picture of where these beasties travelled. :)
