LRDG Truck found?

Beitragvon neil » 12/1/2008, 11:41

Seems to me I heard about a LRDG truck found in the desert a few years back, fully loaded and with the remains of the driver in the cab. The vehicle was recovered and now resides in a local museum, possibly at El Alamein.

[Kuno...I thought you mentioned something about this on a post, or am I wrong.]

Seeking more information (and maybe photos?) about this story...

That's correct Neil. The truckload was boxes full of explosives. They have been destroyed by the Egyptian army and the truck has been brought over to the so called museum at El Alamein. "So called" because if you see, what they have made out of this truck - shame! However; t is not proved that it really was an LRDG truck. If so, it would have been one of the "Heavy Section", responsible for the supply but not an actual patrol truck. Cannot provide the required photos here since I have never been in Egypt myself :(
