Hi to all
I have just acquired a very nice vehicle and I am looking for some info on its history. Can anyone give me some information.

Wow, that takes me back a few years. Sorry, I have record of the veh numbers of the pigs we had. But, nice to see one all dressed up with the wings attached. We used to remove them and only fit them when needed.

We didnt see many flying ones by 83 but we had the newer caged amour and one with a roof hatch for top cover that year. Also in 86-88 the one in XMG had a ferret Turret still.

Thanks for the info, now another question. I want to kit my pig out for a particular time but I am not sure when. Can anyone suggest a time considering the "later" style wings. I also need to know what equipment would have been carried as I am not familiar with the equipment schedule. I would ask that you consider the "personal" items not on schedules but brought with the vehicle. Can anyone advise

Here, hold on a minute, I've just seen your location, you're not planning to invade us, up north, are you ? :)

Bargain!! I think the wings came out for the Mk2 in the mid-70's but don't quote me. Quality wagon though
Springfield Road Police Station, July-Dec 79 [first of the 6th monthers] we didn't have any pigs decorated like that
Best mod i ever saw was the grid iron over the mirrors, however, can't date them either

Hmmm I can smell the paint and oil still. We always carried a wet blanket sealed in a heavy grade black polythene type cover for those unfortunate to get petrol bombed. Oh and a BCF.

Some mornings its hardly worth chewing through the straps!

Fantastic photos. Thats what I like. In service,

Just had a good look at the photo. I notice that there are a few differences between the vehicles. The front one has the later visors an the fans are in different positions.
