Post subject: Morris Light Reconnaissance Car

Hi there, just wondered if anyone had any photos of/information about the Morris Light Recce Car? Used to run a website about it, i'd like to rebuild it and make it better but need stuff to put on it, especially photos. I've seen some very nice ones on www.warwheels.net but need permission from the people that took the photos first, and can't seem to find them.

If it helps, theres examples at the Brussels War Museum, Tank Museum Bovington and Imperial War Museum Duxford, and several in private ownership.

Cheers, Rob Langham

The vehicle in the photo is a Morris Armoured Car, not the Light Recce Car. The Morris Light Recce Car was rear-engined and mounted a small turret with Bren gun offset to the side of the fighting compartment. The Morris Armoured Car saw action early in the war with the BEF in France in 1940 as well as the 11th Hussars in North Africa (alongside Rolls-Royce pattern armored cars during 1940-41). The Morris Light Recce Car came later, towards the end of the North African campaign. I beleive it was used in Italy, and also by Royal Engineer Field Squadrons in NW Europe during 1944-45.

Yeah that's the Morris CS9 armoured car, based on the Morris CS8 15 cwt truck chassis. The Morris LRC was also used by the RAF Regiment, and in NW Europe the Morris LRC was used by a lot of reconnaissance regiments, including the Polish.

Cheers, the Accurate Armour one looks great but can't afford it yet, so stuck with small scale ones at the moment!
