Have been informed by a member serving at the time that ARNs 112-371 and 112-259 were with 8/9RAR in 1978.

112-733 still lives on as a complete unit in Victoria (with rifle) and was seen at Monbulk car show about 2 weekends ago.
Is on the REMLR page too and belongs to John B.

Does anyone recognise this gunbuggy. I was going thru and old internet collection.
These photos date to about 1996 I think. Michael Leys. He had a few Land Rovers, lifelong Solihull fan. I searched Fbook. He was a geologist somewhere like Katoomba or Lithgow as I recall.

Is that John B's . He turned over many many stones looking for that 106.

I met Phil Lloyd (after many years) at Corowa. His gunbuggy has that steering wheel center/horn button cover with the digger's names scratched on the inside. I thought I had a photo of it but no.

The G/buggy mentioned back in March 2018 by Carzee did belong to Michael Leys and I believe he was a Geologist, he named his buggy 'Thomas the Tank Chaser' i have no idea on it's whereabouts, as for JB's 106 he got that from John Belfield aka Melbourne tank museum cheers Dennis

Now that itís had that strip screwed to the side after that paint job and crooked, one would think it would be easier to spot, even if only following a line of holes!
