The Third and Fourth Photos are taken at Bedford, Nth Borneo, with our 9th
Division, near the end of the War in Pacific.
Many of these Soldiers were Rats of Tobruk or later Reinforcements.
What a vehicle they were – helped enormously to win the War, everywhere they were used.
Great to drive also – go anywhere.
The versatile Willys Jeep
At the end of WWII, there were hundreds of acres of closely parked jeeps in Britain.
Since they would depress the auto industry if sold, they were all bulldozed into the sea.
Trucks too. Thousands and thousands of them.
