By David Fletcher
David Fletcher and covered the complete story of the Rolls-Royce Armoured Car. It details its design and development as it fought in the Great War and the turbulent inter-war years.
The first Rolls-Royce armoured car was used by the Royal Naval Air Service in Flanders in 1914. It was a privately owned car fitted with a machine gun and some armour plate. Within a year nearly 100 had been built and were being used by the army. The vehicles were fast, quiet and reliable. But the big selling point was how powerful they were. They went on to serve across the Empire after being modified. It last brief appearance was in the early stages of World War II.
Excellent, illustrations should prove useful for model making.
I found this a really informative book with a good selection of photographs throughout. Recommend to anyone interested in these armoured cars.
This is actually a xmas present for my father whose grandfather EF HEDGE served in Russia under Oliver Locker Lampson in the Royal Naval Armoured car squadron that we are slowly investigating and keen to know more. Appears information is fairly limited on the subject but i am sure he will be extremely excited to receive this .
