Napier lorries supplied to Russia in WW1.
Permalink   


 

A chap we know is restoring a second Napier B74 lorry rather like this one. This second lorry is believed to have been destined for Russia but was never delivered due to the revolution when the order was cancelled. While examining the remaining paint it appears that the first coat was matt black. Can anybody confirm what colour the paint was on lorrys destined for Russia as he plans to restore it to the original colour as part of this contract?

All brititische lorries and armored cars that went to Russia were provided with standard color of the British Army. Olive-green.

So how this Austin 2nd Series.

 

P.S. Napier from Fort Kronstadt (Automobil-Commando) and others Russian troups.
