  • 1920 Pattern Rolls Royce Armoured Car

    Following Belgian success with raids on the German lines in 1914 using light cars, the British Admiralty decided to convert some Rolls Royce Silver Ghosts for similar use and so created the RR Model 1914 Armoured Car. Further modified in 1920, it was this vehicle that remained in service and saw service in countries including Ireland, Iraq, India and Palestine throughout the twenties and thirties. The armoured bodies of these vehicles would later be used to produce the Fordson Armour Car which took part in the final surrender of the Axis in North Africa in 1943.
