ALBION WD HD 23S, (1953)

This is an ALBION WD HD 23S, (1953) believed to be the only short wheelbase remaining. It will receive a cab and chassis restoration this year, with parts from a donor cab. It has an EDBRO three way tipper body which needs replacing. The search goes on. Photo taken end Feb 2009. See also picture #1694 and picture #1695.

I have found a reference to this tipper in the 1956 edition of the British Military Vehicle catalogue that was produced for the annual Military Vehicle exhibition at the FVRDE site in Chertsey, Surrey.
The detailed description is as follows:
Exhibit No 29, FV11105, Truck, 10 ton 6x4 GS (Albion) Tipper (3 Way).
As an aside the FVRDE site became MVEE in April 1970 and is now owned by QinetiQ.
