8 cwt

F8 Ford 4x2 8 CWT

The F8 Ford was seen as a possible replacement for the 1133x3 15 CWT Chevrolets. It came on the scene around the same time that the Jeep became available. At least one of them was used on a patrol by the Kiwis. Afterwards they may have been relegated to rear echelon duties by LRDG headquarters or the Heavy Section. The LRDG tended to use every vehicle, including captured vehicles until it was no longer fit for service.
