"The Piston Broke" 

AA  look into the back of the truck reveals some 1980s vinyl on the floor for protection., (very sensible )

Not clearly visible are two gun racks , and a couple of small rifle openings to shoot through.

Maurice is currently looking for some authentic radio equipment to place in this 'radio room' so if anyone reading this knows where some may be found let him know.

Maurice is quite happy to have authentic radio cases with the internals removed.

Also not visible is the Insignia 'buffalo over boomerang' of the 12 Australian Division Northern Territory. Based in Darwin, raised in 1942 and no longer current.

I am also doing up a Radio Van and I was wondering if there is anywhere that I can info on the history of a particular, individual vehicle. I'd like to know where it served, what unit it belonged to, colour scheme, tac plates/bridge plates, etc. The number on the back door of the van was 72634. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Regards,  Dennis
