Moving vehicles can be hard and a logistical problem, so when we had to
move ten tons of 3inch doodle bug gun, which had been sitting in a scrap
yard for ten years with out moving, barrel at full elevation, flat
tyres, and back wheels seized, about 30 miles we had a problem.

In steps our friends The TA logistical Corps, with one of the most
impresive trucks that I have ever seen. After the three hours of Ta
landrovers nearly burning there clutches out, we manged to get the gun
on the tray of this vehicle. Then came the impressive bit, this vehicle
just lifted the tray up, from one end, not from over head, and put it on
the back asthough the gun was a Dinky toy, and what did that cost us,
including the gun, 2
pints of bear.
All the Best
