Pictures of the famous world war 2 jeep taken at military events around the UK.

If you've never been to one of these shows, it's the place to go to find all kinds of quite interesting people. Anoraks on everyone, let's have a wander...If you want to see what an accounts clerk from Eastbourne looks like when he's dressed as a Feldwebel, now's your chance - 'appel' upstairs in the Red Lion every third thursday of the month and 'kriegspiel' on weekends weather permitting...

Exhibiting a Military Vehicle? - watch out for......Fat Bloke

Fat Bloke generally wanders over with a westler's burger and chips and proceeds to peer in to your pride and joy while dripping a steady rain of dandruff, fried onions and ketchup on your upholstery or bodywork.

Unless challenged, he may well decide to sit in your vehicle while he finishes lunch as he's been on his feet all morning and the strain of walking more than his usual 50 steps a day is beginning to tell. Fat bloke is often accompanied by snotty kid, who unless warned off , may leave bogeys and spill diet coke on your pristine new Worthing canvas windscreen cover....

Look out for Weird Guy

Weird guy normally stays looking at the guns, but if a jeep with a .50 cal or a thompson catches his eye, he may stray over. Weird guy is usually recognisable by his thousand yard stare and inability to make eye contact but occasionally may appear 'normal' (or what passes for normal at an MV show). It can take a sentence or two to establish this:

" Is that a real jeep then?"

"Yes, it's a 1944 Willys MB."

"Can it float?"

"uuum, no..."

" I had one just like this at home that could float and sold it for £30 only a couple of years ago"

"What- A GPA?"

" No it was a special prototype - I had the only one....it could fly too... "

GPA jeeps

GPA Amphibious jeeps - Lined up for shipping in 1944.
Unlike its dry stablemate, the GPA was not a great success.

The rivers of western Europe proved too steeply banked and fast flowing for the 'seep' and many were passed on to the Red Army where they fared better. Post-war the amphibious jeep had very limited use outside the fire and rescue services and consequently many were scrapped.

Today the GPA is a very rare collectors item and the few left hardly ever get their feet wet!
