Reference pics- Universal Carrier Mk II National Railway Museum Shildon

Post by Alex Easten » Fri Feb 21, 2020 8:04 pm

Evening everyone,

Having succumbed to the lure of owning an Armortek Universal Carrier, I decided to grab some pictures of the Universal Carrier displayed on the War Department Flatbed at the NRM Shildon. This is the carrier that was ex Durham Light Infantry Museum which sadly closed a couple of years ago.

As the forum's resident Geordie, I don't live too far away from Shildon. I tend to find myself there every few weeks. If anyone would like any particular photographs please let me know, with a bit of notice the Museum don't mind me clambering about taking photos.

Cheers ;)

Alex
