Default P.A. system on arm'd cars?

Does anyone have photos of loudspeakers mounted on armoured cars in NWE? Used for broadcasting propaganda and such, I'm sure I saw pics somewhere but no joy from google and I've flipped through the most likely books on my shelves. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers, Dave

Default Surrender salesmen

There was an article in 'Wheels and Tracks' some years ago with a few pictures of White Scout Cars and even a converted Austin ambulance.

Who was looking for Psy War vehicles?

Here's an American Dodge Ambulance thus converted.

Default Nice Find!

Thanks, 'Singe', really nice site, I'll be spending some time there. Not only is the loudspeaker interesting, I've not seen the Ram 'Kangaroo' beside it before.
Note the background vehicle on p.8 is actually an M10 17pdr. The 'T1' on an art'y flash is the give-away. P.15, photo B10235 shows the rarely seen 'LittleJohn' adaptor in use. I'm sure there's lots more to be seen. Thanks also to the other chaps for their input.
Cheers, Dave
