Here’s a question for any of you who were with **Eric Vick** in the ‘70s and early ‘80s. I’m trying to work out which of EV’s units went down to the Middle East (on VIJORE work) at that time.

First, to avoid wasting time, is a list of those unit that we know DID go down there.

KFH 248P ERF NGC LHD 4x2

KFH 249P ERF NGC LHD 4x2

HDG 282V ERF B-series RHD 4x2

XDG 613S ERF B-series RHD 4x2

TAF 365 ERF B-series LHD 6x2

HDD 906L Merc LP 1924 RHD 4x2

KKO 823P Ford Transcon RHD 4x2

FAD 314L Seddon (day cab) RHD 4x2

PDG 881M ERF A-series Sleeper RHD 4x2

Then there was a DAF 2800 RHD 4x2 that deffo did North Africa; but did it ever do Middle-East work?

So here’s the crunch question. These units were all pictured with Eric Vick Middle-East tilts. Some had roof-mounted aircons, some were LHD and some had both. They all wore the boots and looked the part but which of them actually did Middle-East work?

OFY 867S ERF B-series RHD 4x2

8557 EV ERF B-series RHD 6x2

RDH 181M ERF A-series (pigeon loft) RHD 4x2 [not to be confused with PDG 881 which had a full sleeper]

— —S ERF B-series LHD 4x2

YRF 823S ERF B-series LHD 4x2

And finally, there was TDG 209V, an ERF B-series RHD 6x2 which remains on the preservation circuit, though I’m not sure if that was an original EV unit.

If you can help out with this I’d be grateful!

Cheers, Ro

Thanks Oily! Thanks Oily. From those pictures I can add to the possible M/E list:

GDF 336L – day cab Seddon 4x2

NDF 253P – Jennings sleeper ERF B-series 4x2

JDG 209V – ERF B-series 4x2
