The jeeps ...

Leo di Rocco has provided more information about the jeeps, as pictured with Paolo Cardinale at the wheel.

... It was great to see the old jeep with Paul at the wheel, I knew him and his whole family. The jeep and many other military vehicles were bought from the Australian army these vehicles were surplus and all American and they were shipped to Australia during the second world war under the lend lease plan. Lets not forget that Hostilities had only ceased 6 years prior to the first men of SAE arriving in Australia.. These vehicles served EPT well into the seventies and eighties. Most were worn out and eventually replaced with the more modern four wheel drives ...
