Default Road sense

Post-war road driving instruction films featuring Bedford MW trucks and OY models. They kept the wartime MW and OY trucks in service for a long time, some lasting into the early 1960s but the poor Morris CS8 was too just too ancient and outdated and it was sent away to the scrap pile !

https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/i...ect/1060008849

https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/i...ect/1060008850

https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/i...ect/1060008851

https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/i...ect/1060008852

1955: In Germany with REME. I spotted WW2 era Bedford QL trucks and a single Morris C8. Leyland Retriever and Austin Champs.

Five films in this series, I also spotted a WW2 Humber Heavy Utility and Jeeps in episode #3 Who can spot the Ford WOT 3 tonner ?

OMG they even have a WOT2 15 cwt on the road plus a old Austin K6 6X4 crane.

I didn't spot the 6x4 variant of the GMC so well done !

I found another SEAC film showing a battered and well used 1941 Ford GP Jeep with a road making crew. The Indian assembled CMPs that were fitted with the canvas top cabs also appear regularly in the SEAC films.
