Default SAS: Rogue Heroes (was: CMP movie stars)

CMP trucks under way from the UK to Morocco for the making of a war movie. Spotted when passing through Gibraltar, see more pictures here: https://www.facebook.com/10468874421...839520670/?d=n

Reportedly, it is for this movie: https://www.bbc.co.uk/mediacentre/20...ue-heroes-cast

The Bedford MW on the back of the trailer is one I restored for a client about 22 years ago. A certain feature on the rear is proof plus another few details.

Maybe they offered owners free new paint, so long as you like desert light stone.

Looking at the pics there's a stripped down looking jeep. I bet it gets 'blowed up reel good' at some point in the movie.

My first thought was that these look to be the two CMP's from Rokycany, CZ....but if the remainder of the vehicles came from the UK, than the CMP's are most likely to have come from there as well (?).

The two Humber 8cwts look like two familiar ones from the UK (one from Tobin?).



I always wonder....my knowledge on German markings is limited, but isn't the "Balkenkreuz" on German vehicles a movie thing?

Default SAS: Rogue Heroes

"First-look and further casting revealed for SAS: Rogue Heroes" - https://www.bbc.co.uk/mediacentre/20...es-first-look/

Quote:
Rich with action and set-pieces, SAS: Rogue Heroes is the exhilarating story of renegade men taking monumental risks in extraordinary circumstances.

Cairo, 1941. David Stirling (Connor Swindells) - an eccentric young officer, hospitalised after a training exercise went wrong - is bored. Convinced that traditional commando units don’t work, he creates a radical plan that flies in the face of all accepted rules of modern warfare. He fights for permission to recruit the toughest, boldest and brightest soldiers for a small undercover unit that will create mayhem behind enemy lines. More rebels than soldiers, Stirling’s team are every bit as complicated, flawed and reckless as they are astonishingly brave and heroic.

“Last surviving founding member of SAS gives his blessing to new BBC drama: Veteran, 101, who parachuted into Nazi-occupied France gives first-hand account to writer of SAS: Rogue Heroes that retells story of elite unit“

Default Chevrolet 1311x3 replica for SAS Rogue Heroes

We’ve all seen the SAS Rogue Heroes series (or parts thereof like me). I spotted the Chevrolet 1311X3 replica which I think looks the part. While most of the 1311X3’s were based on 1939 or 1940 model chassis-cowls, at least one was a 1942 model - and it was used by the LRDG (see the photos above).

Does anyone know who built this replica?

Have you also noticed the 13 cab cmp's , and post war era trucks , marked as German vehicles in convoys and in and around the airfields.

Not yet. Not screened in Aust, and live streaming is blocked by BBC.

Default Sas rogue heroes

Hi Guys

I have been watching the BBC series 1, of SAS Rogue Heroes, (6 episodes) and from what I have seen so far I have enjoyed. The series being advertised on SBS TV in Australia. I believe, after the world cup series have finished.

Hanno, could you please email me.

Cheers

Tony
