This is an FV439, the specialised signals version of the FV432 series. The armoured bin on top contained 2x 3.5KVA generators (Onan). It came in 3 versions{

1) Radio-Relay with 2x SR C50/R236 sets (225-400 MHz)
2) Auto 20 with an automatic 20 line telephone exchange.
3) MCVF with teleprinters (Siemens T100R) and crpto equipment (BID 200 system).

These were used within the BRUIN communications system and were deployed at Brigade HQ level (2 of each for maikn and step-up HQs)

They were refurbished and re-equipped for the Ptarmigan system, but that was after my time with these beasts!
