1972 AEC Militant Mk3 - Dropside (FTM 604L)

This well restored and very rare LHD 6x6 Mk 3 Militant was one of a batch built for use by the British Army of the Rhine (BAOR).
It was photographed on 35mm film attending the AEC Rally, Newark, Nottinghamshire, England in May 2001.

If the "tac-sign" is correct, than it was in use by the MSO (Mixed Services Organisation), a civilian organisation manned by former displaced eastern Europeans.

Thanks for the comment, I understand that these AEC's were used to move spares to various units.
So it is likely that LEC's (Locally Employed Civilians) were used on such "milk runs" rather than military personnel.

Hi guys , This mili was just like the ones we used in our Sqn in Mulheim ad rhur we were on BAOR delivering loads all over on their freight service work . We started with the MK1s so the MK3s were really a jump up , and what great vehicle very capable . My tac sign was 437 . These were used by several different units throughout BAOR .
