The AAGB mainly used Ford mobile first aid units that were imported from America. We are currently seeking more information on the exact model of these vehicles. Below, JEV871 is seen departing Buckingham palace after being inspected by HM Queen Elizabeth (Queen mother) at the AAGB stand down parade in 1945. The Tax disc is from driver Bacon’s ambulance showing that it was a grey ford. It also appears that the AAGB had a small number of Austin K2/y ambulances (as used by the British during the war). The Leeds Austin K2/Y can be seen in the background of a photo of Leeds station being inspected by the Princess Royal. All AAGB vehicles were painted grey with a red stripe and the AAGB logo on the doors (for Ford’s) and on the sides and rear doors(Fro Austin K2/Y’s)
