Camel image on 2a workshop
« on: June 23, 2019, 09:28:50 PM »
I came across a 2a workshop in my travels. No plates were left on it to trace history, just the camel painting on the drivers side guard to build intrigue. Anyone know anything about it?

The camel probably indicates it was once used by 26 Transport Squadron (Amberley)
