I just love riding in the WW2 jeep after dinner before it gets too cold. Why not see what the Chief of Artillery has to say?

For the past few months, the Holabird Quartermaster Depot has been doing considerable test work in connection with the current development and procurement of motor vehicles. This and pressure of other work delayed the departure of the test convoy for Fort Bragg until the early part of March. Undergoing test now by the Field Artillery Board are the following vehicles in the test fleet:

¼-Ton Liaison Truck:

 

gpflyncls2

The Field Artillery Board is concluding its test of ten ¼-ton liaison trucks, manufactured by the Bantam Car Company. So successful has been their performance that recommendations have en submitted for issue to field artillery units on the following basis: a. In lieu of all motor tricycles listed in T/BA’s.b. Substitution of two ¼-ton trucks in each liaison section of light and medium artillery and in each firing battery of motorized artillery.

c. The addition of one ¼-ton truck per battalion headquarters battery of horse and horse-drawn artillery.

Extension of the use of this vehicle beyond that given above is anticipated as experience in gained with it.

Bantam, Ford, Willys–1/4-ton Reconnaissance Cars is a book I have written to discuss those early vehicles that became known as “jeeps”. The book includes a number of rarely seen “jeep” photos.

A Bantam BRC-60, one of the original 70 jeeps built, being put through its’ paces. The troops immediately fell in love with the vehicle that in a slightly different form would go on to help win the war with nearly 600,000 copies being produced.

 

Bantam Pilot

American Bantam Car Co. was the first to deliver what would become known as the “jeep”.

The book is filled with photos of the Bantam BRC-60 and BRC-40. Specifically covered is the BRC-40 preserved at the Veterans’ Memorial Museum in Huntsville, AL. This is a great museum to visit with a good size collection of military vehicles.

The book also covers the Ford GP and Willys MA. You can purchase a copy of the book directly from the publisher or through Amazon.com (and other booksellers).
