Please excuse my ignorance but the written commentary calls the two smaller vehicles Land Rovers. The look like Austin Champs-or are they?

I wonder how the Leyland Daf trucks brought in in the late 80s would have got on with that lot.

They certainly are Austin Champs. By the time I joined up they were out of service. The only one around was a Cut-away version at SEME ,Bordon.

Was that the one that used to sit in the middle of a passage way? Was it the building closest to Oakhanger Road, or the one on the opposite side of the Driver Training Square?
