Next 3,

Does anyone know what this was for?

And a closer look at the scrub bar, as well as a repair patch(?)

And 3 more,

Rear view, showing cable reel bracket, Door TAC sign holders and FFT Jerry can holders.



Inside view, hard to be sure, but I'd be pretty confident that the 4 troop seats were fitted when it left service. The thing behind the drivers set is a fuel tank, that I don't thinkk has anything to do with the vehicle.



Another inside view, showing the roof lights and the jerry can bracket in the centre of the tub, as fitted to the GS vehicles.

Some more rear detail,

The FFT jerry can holders are mounted on the outboard of the rear cross member, probably to keep the door clear.
This means that the NATO socket needs to be mounted inboard, instead of on the chassis as per the FFT.



Instead of mounting the ARN plate on the door, it was mounted on the chassis, so the number plate light needed a special bracket as well,



Here's a shot of the cable reel holder, the reel is held on with a tail gate anti luce clip.

And that's about it, I do have one more, the Aux battery stowage.

Very well made, I like the wheels it rolls out on.



I hope these are useful, this vehicle is pretty much in the condition that it left service in, when it was auctioned off.

Cheers,

Mike.

Hi  mike k great photo's , the door pockets are for maps, compass & protractors but mainly maps. Also mate might need you to make the aux and main battery label up.

I've got a strange vehicle table that I have never worked out how to mount or what it is for. Could be what you are talking about. I will post a photo tomorrow.

That reminds me Howard,
I've had this in the shed for years, does anyone reconnise it?





It is designed to mount on about a 30 angle, and I have never been able to find any where on the Land Rover where it could go. Is looks like it is designed to hold documents etc, with the spring running along the top.
Length is 42" or 1065mm, height is 12" or 302mm. The clamps span 28mm fully open, down to 22mm fully closed, so it mounts to something at least 22mm thick.



It looked unused when I picked it up years ago, and was always olive drab. It does not have any bronze green, so I guess that makes it mid 60s and on.
I have always wondered what this was, will be interesting to find out, I'm sure that it is something really obvious that I've missed!

Cheers,

Mike.

Just came in from taking photos and ready to post when I saw Mike's latest. That is exactly the same as the table I have - bought it from Aussie Disposals at their warehouse about 15 years ago and have never been able to figure out what it is for or how it is mounted.

Well at least two of us have one! Hopefully someone will put us out of our misery :)
