The Registry Of Ex-Military Land-Rovers Au, NZ, etc Land-Rover Series 2A ¼ Ton GS (Military Police)

Welcome to another "John's Shed" page.

Each of John's ex-Army Land-Rovers has it's own photo page:

  1. The Gunbuggy -a ¼ ton 88" Gunbuggy (restored 1999-2000)

  2. The MP unit -a ¼ ton 88" G.S. Military Police (restored 2000-2001)


Number 2: THE MP UNIT

Whilst John spent 2001 looking for a 106mm gun mount and a replica spotting gun for his Gunbuggy, he did not just sit around waiting for the phone to ring. John restored a 1963 Land-Rover Series 2A G.S. - and since he has a strong interest in the MP Corps, he restored it as a MP unit. This restoration needed quite a bit of work and lots of time hunting down parts, but it looks a treat and has been restored using photos from the Vietnam era for reference. (Eg AWM P0869/105/083)
