I always wonder when military vehicles are on show if they really are genuine. This Morris certainly has the age and the look. Over to you guys....

Yes, very much a well-restored original, markings for a lorry-born infantry battalion in 43rd (Wessex) Infantry Division.

My father also did design and development work on this and interestingly, my brother-in-laws's father served with the 43rd. These Morris utilities (and the Austin, Hillman and Standard versions) were allegedly very popular and the Germans never really caught on to the idea until it was too late.
