Rolls Royce armoured cars (2)

Well the cars continued in service right up the the early years of the war, including the battles in the Western Desert, their armament was changed to a Boyes AT Rifle, Bren and 2" smoke mortar in an open topped turret.

Makes a nice change from the heavy armour late war
