Originally derived from the original Guy Armoured Car design the Rootes Group undertook the work as Guy could not continue production given their other commitments. Humber made a number of changes to suit their production and the resultant Mk.I, armed with both a 15mm & 7.92mm Besa, was externally very similar to the Guy. In total over 5000, in four Marks, were built between 1940 and 1945. Following the experience in France in 1940, it was determined as a matter of urgency to provide mobile anti-aircraft protection. This design, based on the hull of the Humber Mk.I and armed with four 7.92mm Besa MG's., was intended for use in North Africa. Three hundred were ordered but delays, especially the destruction during an Air Raid on Bath, of the factory building the turrets delayed this to the point were this deployment never happened. This model depicts this interesting and rare AFV which eventually did see service in NW Europe. Photographic evidence shows one in Denmark with the armoured column sent there to accept the German surrender in 1945.
