Thanks for posting this picture Steve. I wonder if these earlier 3SW's with 6" headlamps and forward facing horn were basically the pre war 3SE? Ron

The WD serials indicate C5108 machines.

As an RASC contract, the Chilwell records have no detail about spec. The MoS ledgers are sparse too.


As an aside, 1st Cavalry Division's Horse were shipped via France and appear in the BEF movement listings. Vehicles and most men were sent by sea.
