Hi Alan, A DUKW with a cabin cruiser body! What a strange and interesting sight. Did you go on it? Or maybe you popped along to Lime street to see North Wales Coast Express leaving for Holyhead?

Best wishes Peter

I've seen these roving round London Alan, but have never been on one. They look great fun I have to say! :)))

Cheers, Amelia

I used to operate one of these for a while whilst in the Army a long time ago Alan ~ all of the superstructure in your shot is an add on and not authentic at all. They originally had an open cargo deck at the back that could have a canvass cover slung over it, supported by removable hoops. The driving cockpit merely had a windscreen and two sloping side pieces , the canvass top if being used could be stretched over the top of the cockpit. They were a lot of fun to drive out to sea through the heavy surf we used to get in North Devon ~ we were based in Fremington near Barnstable and we used to practice a lot on Saunton Sands near RAF Chivenor ~ We also had a part of Instow where other amphibious vehicles were kept and put on trial.
