While I was leafing through a book titled "Chauvel of the Light Horse" by Alec Hill yesterday, I came across this photo of a T staff car, circa 1917/18.

It was of interest because of the limit straps on the rear axle. Although I've seen photos of quite a few WW1 Ts, I'd not seen any of these in use before.



BTW, do you think Cox knew there was a photographer in the vicinity ?

If the photo is not posed, I would say the General knows he is be photographed. If you blow up the pic he is staring right at the camera.

Jem,

These Model T Light Cars, which were in use by the British and Empire armies during WW1, all came from the Manchester factory, so they were a mirror image of the equivalent US produced vehicle.
The LC 1357 (LC = Light Car) number was the military registration - although it's a little obscured, there is a broad arrow between the LC and the number
