Default Foxes in Poland

Hello Adam,

Is the Fox in this list of survivors? See page 21 and onwards: http://the.shadock.free.fr/Surviving...oured_Cars.pdf

I see this list has two possible candidates:
Quote:
"Fox Armoured Car – Being transferred to Poland
Two Fox armoured cars have been found in the scrapyard of the Italian army base in Sigonella, Sicily, in 2018. They were intended forscrap before the end of the year. These two Fox have a special cooling system, which would indicate that they served in North Africa,and then in Sicily in July, 1943 on. Fox armoured cars served in Polish units that fought in Italy during WW2, notably the 15th PułkUłanów Poznańskich"
Here's hoping some people can help fill in their background / history.

Yes it's the same vehicle (left one). Nameplates were discovered during cleaning the interior of the vehicle last Saturday. They are quite well preserved.
