a bit about his two Lightweights in Bruce's words.
are some photos of my 2 Lightweights. 27 GT 98 was acquired from Medicine
Hat Salvage back in Dec.1988. KAM 388 was bought in Edmonton in 1991
and they are only 39 serial numbers apart. Inquiries to Land Rover,
Solihull, gives 27 GT 98 a date of birth of Oct. 3, 1978. Later when
I was touring England with my family, I looked into its military history
at the Museum of Army Transport in Beverly, North Humberside. Not very
dramatic as it was taken into service at Hilton Depot, on 20-12-1978.
Departed for Ordinance Depot, BATUS Canada on 8-2-1979. Disposed from
BATUS on 2-12-1986. It faired better than 27 GT 96 which was also of
the same group coming to Canada but its record shows it a SOFT TARGET
