403 Squadron Erks With a Captured German 3 Wheeled Truck

Mark White’s post about his father…

Here are some more pictures from my father, George White’s collection, taken in Germany during the war.

The truck appears to be a Tempo E 200 truck flatbed, probably manufactured in the mid to late 1930s.

Here’s some more information on Vidal & Sohn Tempo-Werk.

It’s only got a capacity of 750kg – I don’t think it could carry the Merlin engine!

  1. I never noticed before, but the the Erk standing behind the ladder in the picture captioned, Somewhere in Germany, appears to be my dad.
    He also appears to be wearing a civilian hat. Certainly not standard R.C.A.F. issue.
    I wonder where that hat came from.
    There was probably a good story behind it!
    Cheers,
    Mark.
