Military Archives - The RAF Vanguard Pickup Virtual Museum

Phil Gates has added the above photo to this collection of Standard Vanguards in RAF service (March 2008)

Here is another Military Standards photo, I have found on Flickr. The photographer has given permission for it to be put on the SMC Website.


Don't think there has been such a good photo of an in-service vehicle found .


Note position of wing mirrors, which was different in later models, and partially non chrome  front bumpers.


I enjoy your efforts on the 'site'."

Here are other photos that Phil has supplied earlier:

Hi Phil

Thought you might like this photo, taken by Cliff Lowe, when he was in the RAF in Singapore in the 1950's.

Not sure where the crashed one was taken, evidentially the Pick-ups were often overturned

He is pleased for it to be used on the site.

I have a few more RAF photos if you are interested.

Here is another photo of a Military S/V pickup: A supplies vehicle has just arrived from RAF Manston at RAF Ash, a deep radar installation used in the Cold War period.
