In Service Photos of 113-211 and Convoy
« on: January 28, 2013, 09:08:39 PM »
In the REMLR ARN page, 113-211 is shown as a 1964 Command Reconnaissance. At some stage in it's service life, this CR has received the square cut guard package upgrade.

113-211...88...1964...Series 2A...6005...Truck, Command Reconnaissance, 1/4 Ton...Vic...18.11.71

The second photo shows 113-252 as lead convoy vehicle.

Hi Stuart,

FYI - there is an error in the database showing S2A 88 GS as Command Reconnaissance. It has been reported and will be fixed as time permits.

Nice pics !!

Cheers,

Pete

Fantastic pics Tommy, Thank You,
I love seeing photos like these!.

As Pete has said there must be an error in the database, I didnt think there were any 2A CR's, only s2.

Yes, that one is a challenge I have been having in the database, you see census 6005 is both command recon and general service.  So I put the GS as 6005. or 6005.. 

I have done this with a few entries.  Trouble is, when I export and edit in excel, sometimes it takes the following dots off, and makes them all command recons.  I need to get in and correct that set again. Great photos though!

The GS is a confusing classification.

It differentiates all vehicles that have cross country mobility.  e.g. 6006 is "Truck, Utility, Light, G.S. Fitted For Radio" so while a G.S. could mean a standard cargo carrying vehicle it could also be an FFR or an Ambulance etc.

Sorry Carzee but I have no idea about the what, where, why, who etc of these pix :(

By the way, 113-252 is also noted down as a Command Reconnaissance (CR).
