The Pride of England

We had a treat. We were actually the first group to use the new Land Rovers. These were long trucks, configured with two seats in the front part, then two, two and three in the back part. The roof hatch raised and it was possible to stand and look out of the top.

It was great with six or fewer people in the back. It was a little crowded when there were seven, especially if two other guys and I were in the back row trying to stand at the same time.

These trucks seemed indestructable. They would definitely be put to the test over the next couple of weeks.
