The truck above is (probably) re-using a registration from an earlier vehicle which was a CCKW 353 that Clive Stevens bought off Neil Stevens in 1993 which was ex Lamanva.  It went to Normandy in 1996 (with a Willys MB in the back) and was sold on in 1997.  It was scrapped by Rex Ward around 1999/2000. The cab was sold off, the rear cargo body went to Tony Goff in Norwich and the axles and chassis went to one of the DUKW operators for use as spares.
