Response to Lanchester 6x4 armoured car and Vickers LMG(?) in Malaya


FE-482 is very similar to FE-481. I have no means of putting photos on this so - FE-482 looks like the same group of Marmon Herrington MK III Armoured Cars most likely in Singapore. However, the photo is taken from ground level. The same white building, or a building that looks very much like the one in the distance in FE-481 appears in FE-482

I notice in the photo of the model Kiwi Marmon Herrington MK II, your model does not have the sand chutes (ditching boards). Could that be because the Kiwis were about to go to Greece? I believe you will find all South African Marmon-Herrington MK II and MK III Armoured Cars used in North Africa were overall one colour. The British used camouflage patterns from the King's Dragoon Guards in late 1940 until Tunisia. However, that's straying from Malaya - Singapore
