Nice photo gallery. Good in the field photos too. I prefer seeing this kind of picture over the too-clean and everything strapped correctly shots.

Great find, the last one is particularly interesting as it shows a HAR-1 with both US and USN registration number! USA 4402157 and USN 147000

Pictures were made in 1944, when Port Hueneme on the Southern California coast, was an Advance Base Depot for the US Navy, serving it's Construction Battalions (CB's or "SeaBees") which is why there is lots of construction equipment to be seen in this photo set.

Seems Colin finished the job properly - pic of his truck found on the inter web.

Great photos in the FB links. A skilled photographer using symmetry and perspective. Even the human subjects are interesting subjects. Like the woman taking notes; the photo is a study not a portrait.

Never mind the what is in the photos (the DUKWs, the Jeeps, the piles of anchor chain, the box car of anchors, the rows of equipment), think about all that high quality steel and the machinery necessary to make each of those specialized pieces. Then how do two dozen wheeled compressors get from some backhills mountain foundry and plant in Kentucky, out to the Pacific coast? By rail, and a lot of it too. Impressive!

found in the NAA archives.... 1950s

Some kind of servicing vehicle with Commonwealth reg. plate

Think I can read TECALEMIT on the drums ?


They are a fairly rare machine here in OZ , you see the odd one in a old saw mill, usually in a horrid state . A former VMVC member was restoring one in the late 70's early 1980's , down on the Bellarine peninsula - Don't know what became of it or him . I had a Parts list for a FWD HAR cargo truck , sold it to a chap in Tassie who has one of the trucks - Near Deloraine .

Glen's truck is a beauty - odd colour scheme though , gloss orangy yellow .

Mike


The FWD I came across near Deloraine in Tassie - I clearly recall it had a Allied Works Council (AWC) reg. plate on the side of the cab , the chap had some unusual stuff including the remains of a U.K. built carrier and other rare vehicles including the ex-Clemons WD Thornycroft 6X4 workshop truck and a Cletrac high speed airfield tractor, a military EH Mack. Don't know what became of it all, it was over thirty years ago !

Mike,
I looked at the photo first before reading your message, and immediately recognised the lubrication unit as a Tecalamit. It looks identical to the ones used by the British Army and mounted on a trailer with canvas curtains on the side of the roof. The unit would have a stationary engine driving an air compressor to work the pumps. I recall working on one these many years ago.

At least two more were in service- looking different to the other one.
