2 x missile variants of the Ferret. On the left a Mk 5 with "Swingfire" installation. On the right is what is probably a Mk 2/6 with "Vigilant" missiles, although its MoD rego number if for a straight Mk 2 vehicle.

Larkspur radio installation in the Ferret, as you can see, it was a shoehorn job.

Top left is a man pack set, probably a B-47 or B-48 sitting in the vehicle adaptor mount. Bottom left is the power supply, to it's right is the main radio, this should be a C-42. British radios of that era (1950s - 1960s)had their own inbuilt intercoms.


11167

Typicallly Ferret, note how the radios butt up to the commander's seat. They are a pain in lower back and kidneys.

Ditto.

More Ferrets - note the one in UN white. I am glad someone else owns it as I would hate to have to keep it clean. Every tiny oil leak would show. It looks lovely however and full marks to the owner.


11177

A Mk 1/2 with lots of kit. Note the very bruised LHR pannier. AS panniers are very hard to get, you have to make do with what you have.
