In Service - SeriesIIA Land Rover - 1961 through to the mid 80s
The Land Rover has been used extensively by all three of Britain’s armed forces (Army, Navy and Air Force) from the first Series 1 back in the 1950s right up to the Land Rover XD Wolf currently in use. The model represents a long wheelbase version of the Series IIA vehicle with a mesh grille and headlights set in the wings. This particular mark of vehicle came into service in the late 1960s and continued in use with earlier Series 2 and later Series 3 vehicles for a considerable number of years. They were all taken out of service at the end of the 1990s when all of the leaf-sprung Land Rovers were withdrawn from service in favour of the more modern coil sprung Land Rover Defenders and Wolf. This model represents the soft top version used extensively by all three services and also widely used by farmers.
