When I had my 1948, I had posted a message on the website of REME's forum of retired service men, in the hope they might be able to help with some research I was doing into the history of my car. I have just received an email from a certain Norman'Sandman' Ingram who unfortunately couldn't help with my car in particular but remembers his days at 31 Arm Wksp Rotenburg near Bremen. This photo, from his album, shows him next to his REME Oval in 1955, with Army registration DIXJ47. He clearly remembers how the VW were simply all over the army bases!:wink:
