NZ Workshop
« on: March 22, 2013, 05:25:29 PM »
The Workshop that lives in the National Army Museum in NZ, was it a special for the NZ army, how did it get there?

There were a number or processes, the NZ Government purchased a number of ex-AU surplus Landies which underwent a full rebuild at the Land Rover factory in NZ.  A lot of these came via the ANZUK base in Singapore when the force was disbanded and pre-deployed equipment returned to the country of origin or disposed.

Remember at this time the NZ Army was still using 80" Land Rovers.

Juddy,

I think if you have a quick read of the link Diana provided, you might be able to answer that question yourself.

Cheers,

Pete

Yes, there are a lot of blanks, and I have had little time, or information, to dedicate towards doing more research on the NZ fleet.  I believe that NZ my have only had 1 or 2 workshop vehicles, but I do not have the chassis number of the one at the museum, and my last planned NZ holiday never happened as there was a bt of a mess there at the time from earthquakes.  I went to Fiji instead.

So, we know they have at least 1-2 workshops, I believe 2-3 ambulances and quite a few skippy shorties.
