Landrover Ambulance Radio Fit

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. A friend of mine has just acquired a Landrover ambulance, one of the series II/series II types and wants to know if 351 radios were ever fitted and, if so, how?

    Can anyone help with any info please?
  2. Unless I'm mistaken, the PRC 351 was a man-pack radio set.
  3. S3 Ambulance's were never fitted with radios they only had man packs and normally seen strapped to the spare wheel on the bonnett!!!
  4. I can't recall from the top of my head about the clansman stuff but the new bowman fit ambulances have a manpack radio strapped in in the space abouve the drive/commanders head with an antenna mount on the roof.

    It wouldn't be beyond the realms of possability for the clansman fit to be similar but with tuams and stuff instead.
  5. We have one.
  6. Thanks for the info, I will try the RLC and RAMC Boards as suggested
  7. From memory, you get several types of ambulance fit. BG's/Role 1 should have had a VHF/351 fit and those employed in roles 2 & 3 should have been HF/320. Pretty certain Role 2 & 3 fixed sites are HF and Sat
  8. Thanks for the info Polar, sounds interestingt but could you
    let me know what Role 1/Role 2 & 3 are please?
