As an aside, this Camel Trophy thingy was recently mentioned by a chap at Rotary. During a meeting, the question arose regarding who so-and-so was.

"Not sure how you could miss her, old bean. She rides around town in a yellow Land Rover covered in Camel Trophy stickers, with a large number of jerry cans and sand shovels strapped on the roof rack, a humongous radio aerial and her name emblazoned on the side."

"I  know it's been a bit dry of late, but I would say she's over-doing it for your typical spring weather in Otley..."

Pretty cool Land Rovers to have PM, pretty sought after.

A guess... were they built from aluminium salvaged from aeroplanes left over from WWII?

Green paint left over from camouflaging industrial sites?
bearing

I believe PM is partly correct on the aluminium, they used the Birmabright because it was abundant, plus Steel was rationed in '48.

The colour I believe was cockpit light green, obviously surplus from the war.

Did you know the first Land Rovers were centre steer?
bearing

My favourite colour by the way is Bronze Green, the deeper the better.

No. 17 Is a great one.  The answer is Prince as in 'Prince of Darkness' Lucas electrical parts are renowned in Land Rover circles for failing at inappropriate times and leaving one in the dark.
