An impressive trio. Does this ensemble turnout just as pictured? Is it driven on blue lights? Are these used purely for flood work? Thank you.

Ex Army?

Added by Kyle on 28 June 2012.
Yes, apparently all pieces are ex-Army. It can't travel on blue lights as far as I know, as it's still not fitted with them - I know it isn't in either the above or my photos. The Haaglunds is registered Q536 RFE, amd the Leyland 4x4 (which was designated operational support unit originally) carries the "cherished" plate H1 OSU.
