SNOWDROP ISSUE

 

All got a bit busy at the end of last year - civilian and military re-enactors turned out on boxing day and the day after to experience the atmosphere of a 1940s Christmas Leave on The Watercress Line at Alresford.

New members Dan and Tracey Turton acquired a jeep last year but are not sure what it is or where it came from!  Dan has a hunch it was a British jeep but it has been changed to US markings.  The chassis no is 13353 which makes him think it’s a Ford GPW but the data plate on dash reads 264522 which means it’s a Willys MB! The V5C says it’s a 1942 Willys MB and first registered privately in 1947.  He has the Facebook group members of British Army Jeep Research on the case, and if anyone can point him in the right direction they can!

Our impromptu ‘Crackers & Nuts’ south coast road run on 30th December was a resounding success!  We met up with the organisers of LEE VE75 at Lee on The Solent, dropped by the Stokes Bay former WW2 Phoenix Caisson construction and launch site, dived into the RN Submarine Museum at Gosport for coffee and nosh, finally calling into Fort Nelson (National Armouries Museum) overlooking Portsmouth Harbour. We were joined by friends from Solent Overlord Executive Military Collectors Club (SOE), resulting in a fine convoy of eight jeeps, a Land Rover Perentie and a 101, a Morris staff car, an International M3L-4 truck and two bikes to keep us in order!
