Coles Crane and RL Bedford low profile fuel bowser.


War Hero
During the 1970's MSRD at Aircraft Workshops had Coles cranes for aircraft recovery.
I am looking for a photograph. I do not know what chassis the cranes were on. If anyone can help it would be appreciated.

I am also looking for an image of an RL low profile tanker. These were I believe made largely for the RAF however we had one. It blotted it's copy book by having it's tank split just after leaving Gutersloh full. German police and fire brigade not impressed.

The top of the tank was well below cab height hence low profile. Again any help appreciated.
