I have recently bought a Land Rover 101 FC. Its RAF reg was 01 AM 15. I am researching its history and trying to trace photographs of my Rapier TRT in particular but would appreciate any photographs of Land Rover 101 Rapier FUT or TRT's, in service.

The card for 01AM15 shows it was converted as a G/S under Mashalls FVE 21A/230 contract and entered service in 1983, when it was returned to Ashchurch. In 1984 it was fitted out as a Rapier Tracking Radar Tractor (TRT), by 18 Command Workshops, as a planned repair, with the Asset Code 1829 0750. The vehicle was then issued to RAF West Raynham, where it served with 66 Sqn RAF Regt as part of 6 Wing defending USAF airfields until being struck off and sold at ADT, Boongate in 1992.

Since 19 Sqn was also part of 6 Wing I am seeking help from you guys.

Thanks Mike Fincher
