Description- " Nine T Model Ford cars of the RAF Light Armed Car Patrol lined up outside their headquarters (HQ) at the RAF Armament School. During the Cairo riots of late 1918 and early 1919 the unit was used to quell riots and rescue people from violent mobs. Each car was armed with two .303 Lewis machine guns, one mounted on a pedestal at rear, and a dismountable one was operated by the front seat passenger. All four crew carried revolvers. Reading from right to left and front to back the serial numbers of the first three are LC2194, LC1673, and LC2119 with a small dog, possibly a mascot, sitting on its bonnet. Similarly configured Fords were used by the Australian Light Car Patrol in 1918 in actions against the Turks."

Interesting to see them equipped with Stepney Wheels as spares.
