Look at the load on the poor little bugger with still more going on?

Fords had worm drive diff unlike the cars and certainly no speedsters.

These will make you feel better.

 

 

 

Note how they all wear sandshoes. I have noted this before. RM Williams was not a big player in the agricultural world.

Lang, re makes of light cars used by Aus, Pioneers of Australian Armour lists the T Fords, along with a donated single each of Daimler, Mercedes, and Minerva. Might be one of those.

Not a Daimler or Mercedes I will look at Minnervas.

just looked at "Light Car Patrols" all about such things. Those early armoured cars (the Minnerva was one, not a light car) were total rubbish and did not last in service long.

The Austral;ians quickly developed the Model T operations, firstly against the Senussi arabs in Lybia. They penetrated further into the Sahara than any vehicles before them. The Long Range Desert Group found the T Model tracks in another war 25 years later.

They then turned their attention to the Turks and of course were capable of 5 times as much work as horses and the Light Horse valued them highly. A very important thing was after a good fight all the recce vehicles came out and carried the wounded piled in the back many times faster than the horse-drawn ambulance where the soldiers died in the hell of heat and bumpy ride in slow tortuous journies back to hospital.

There were several Light Car Patrols this is the story of the 1st Light Car Patrol

Some More Photos including the terrible home made Australian Armoured cars.

 

If you look two photos down you will see the blokes on the book cover got to the top of the hill!

 

 

 

And last but not least my uncle Jimmie Batten from Berrigan doing his party truck at the show (I can't swear this is him but he had a similar tipping Model T all tricked up for the local shows. My cousins Graham and John were recruited as ballast)

Might the "odd one out" in Lang's photo, be a Humber?

looks too small to me. Unfortunately when blown up it is on the join of 2 photos. Those headlight mounts make it too old for an American car of 1917/18 so something British?
