Universal Carrier Mk I

Powered by a Ford V8 engine the Universal Carrier saw a lot of service with the British Army. Originally a Light Reconnaissance vehicle it was eventually used for a range of purposes. This vehicle is painted in the colours and insignia of the Desert Rats.


  1. That's the best picture I have ever seen of one of those, and since the first British authors I read talking about them didn't explain what they were, it made me all the more curious. Now though I see the usefulness of it in that environment.

  2. That's a well preserved one aswell or have they redone it.
