Default Reference images

I've just put up some more 1000 pixel wide images for reference on the site, 3 great pics of a Canadian built F15 and the Australian counterparts, trucks, 15 cwt GS (Aust) No 1 and No 2.

Most of these were taken at the army testing facility at Monegeeta around 1942, and come from the Bandiana Army Museum archives.

Rob, you mean of the truck shown here: http://www.oldcmp.net/ref_gs_1_2.html? Mind you, that's an composite Australian GS box, not a Canadian one.
