The Tilly was the name given to a number of British vehicles produced during WWII based on civilian car designs, adapted for use by each of the armed forces across all areas during the conflict. The key vehicles used were the Austin, Hillman, Morris and Standard. The Austin Tilly is the subject of the latest piece of new tooling in the Oxford Military range. Tilly was the nickname derived from the term Utility and these hybrid vehicles proved especially versatile, fitted with a simple rear loading area. Very few remain today but they can be seen in military museums at home and abroad, including the Yorkshire Air Museum, the Muckleburgh Collection and overseas in the Ta Kali Museum in Malta, the French Regional Air Museum at Angers-Marce and the Czech Republic tank museum just outside Prague. The Tilly register logs all 'finds' with members across Europe and Austrailia.
The Austin Tilly of the 51st Highland Division is only the second Oxford release on the new tool and comes in realistically applied dark green and dark earth camouflage, with 'canvas' back and brown chassis and wheels. Authentic military numbering and lettering feature on the front and rear ends of the vehicle. An interesting addition is the spare wheel on the cab roof with a spade, intricately reproduced with a brown handle and silvered spade head.
