2a Bloodbox
« on: June 12, 2018, 11:19:28 PM »
Hello All

I have managed to pick up a bloodbox after a long search. its complete but missing a lot of the bolt on army bits etc. I got the chassis number and looked it up on the site. it comes up as ARN 114 211. The site lists that it has had UN deployment and there is a archive photo in white. Is there any way of finding the archive picture through the site at all ?. will try and get some pics tomorrow. there are some on the facebook bloodbox page from the previous owner .  Cheers Gaz

Hi Gaz, congrats on the bloodbox find.
I will look around my collection for the archive pic after work. Cheers.

So far just usual BBB data: chassis 25317665C, 1966, C suffix
Perth Log. Bn. disposal july 1991



I was looking in the UNTAC archives, but that was 1993 and 114-211 was already in civvy hands.... so if it was in UN white, what UN mission was it I wonder. So, no, haven't found pic yet.

Thanks for the replies guys. I had a good look over it in the daylight and there is no trace of any white on it anywhere ?. good to know its sister has survived.  ;D
