Do you have any more pictures of this vehicle? I am currently researching Carmichael Commandos to write a book on them and would be interested in any information or pictures you have of this vehicle (and any other Commandos).
I suppose you don't know the chassis no and build no?

Best regards,

According to my dad (who served with Cleveland FB at the time), when delivered to Stranton the firemen considered it to be unstable when cornering, so the builders sent up an expert who drove it round the training yard getting faster and faster. It leant quite alarmingly but never toppled - firemen happy!
