    Ford 15cwt, as seen on the Normandy beaches in June 1944. It is in overall khaki drab with black pattern painting and, on the left wing, bears the formation sign of the Royal Netherlands Brigade (Princess Irene's). The serial number 114 on a red/blue arm of service flash is on the front of the right mudguard and identifies the vehicle as being part of the brigade's artillery component.

    These trucks are designed for Canadian Military hence belong to series of Canadian Military Pattern. The CMP (Canadian Military Pattern) series of trucks were built in huge numbers during WW2 and provided good service in NW Europe, North Africa and Italy as well as the Far East.
