Response to Whippet painting

Lovely stuff. What's the figure?

War Diaries show that Fuel came in red 2 gallon cans (withthe top tied on with string so you could tell it as avgas in teh dark).

Crews fueled by hand.

What Battalion are you doing?

Model T vans - but not pick-ups occur in War Diary records regularly enough, so it splausible. The T will have WD and a broad arrow on teh side with its Serial on teh bonnet. I'd paint a white T on the side as this marking for all Tank Corps vehicles got banned in 1918, so it cleraly existed. I've only ever seen it on a Mk V.
