We are pleased to present another great gift idea, especially for Oxford’s military enthusiasts, which brings together ten authentic Land Rovers as used by the British Armed Forces, ranging from their initial order in 1948 for 48 Series I vehicles for the British Army to huge numbers for use in many different roles by all three British Armed Services, as well as by numerous foreign countries to the present day. Many were civilian types adapted for military use while others such as the air portable Lightweight and the 101” Forward Control were specifically designed for the military. Its uses include cargo and troop transport, ambulance, reconnaissance, bomb disposal, communications and line laying.
