Hendon. RAF Museum
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

I once spent a four-week exercise in a Ferret. They might well be armoured but they still leak when it rains!

This very Fordson is also featured on p. 30 of 'World War 2 Allied Vehicles' by John Blackman. Lovely vehicle!

Yep. IIRC, Ford was doing a very brisk business in Germany in the pre-war years, just as a market opportunity.
