Default Would you mind if I copy these photos?

Hi David

Would you mind if I copy these photos to add them to the photos on my web site on the CMP 84 page, with source credit of course?

Cheers Phil

David, for the uninitiated, who are the people in the photos? How, where and when? (or is this an in-house only item).

I would love to be caught behind any interesting military vehicle, especially a staghound. Not the type of turret we are used to here in OZ.

Regards Rick.

The Crusader turret looks a lot like the one on the staghound here at the RCA museum, so I am going to guess that this is Bill Gregg and gang, possibly sometime around the CMP conferance time period. Is that a young and slender Peter Ford I see in one photo?

Phil: Yes, by all means feel free to add the pix to your CMP 84 site.

Rob: Good eye for the Staghound. It is the same vehicle.

Rick: It certainly does not happen all that often, but when it does, it is GREAT fun! As Phil and Rob suspected, the photos are indeed from the CMP 84 Conference put together by Bill Gregg at his home in Rockwood, Ontario all those years ago. The final tweaking and painting of the Staghound had only been completed a few days before the start of the conference, and the person in charge of that project for Bill Gregg was Stew Robertson, who is seen leaning against the Staghound in the second photo. That photo was taken at Stew's place as I recall, when we were prepping for the road move of the Staghound down the highway to Bill's place. That is the back of Peter Ford's head in the second photo, by the way, busy taking pictures. I think he rode back to Bill's in the Staghound, when Stew was at the controls.

I took the first picture from the passenger's seat of a chase vehicle, being driven by Bart Vanderveen. It was an interesting trip. The fuel pump on the Staghound was not pumping enough gas to the two engines for some reason and the problem was compounded by it being a very hot and humid day which created a bout of vapour lock.

Yes, Rick. the turret is from a Crusader, the Staghound being what I believe is referred to as a Mark III. The other noticeable difference is the extended side lockers which took over the former location of the external fuel tanks. I think a number of these Mk III Staghounds ended up with the Batista Government in Cuba in the early 1950's.

The third picture is Bart Vanderveen at Bill Gregg's place and that is Bill in the background.

Cheers for now.


David

Hah...not bad for a young guy. I thought that was the back of Dr. Gregg, and I was sure that was Peter with the camera.

The style of blue jeans and the vega hatchback passing the staghound (and the dated haircuts) all helped to date the photos.

David, thank you for that great info on the how, when and who. All of those names are familiar to me as I have been around the scene for a long time. It will help the newer collectors put faces to the names of those who have gone before and formed the basis of the MV collectors movement.

Got any more photos to share?

Regards Rick.
