Postings have been a bit thin recently as we've had a few days away in the Lake District. Mostly much-needed 'down time'.
Anyway, back to the (slightly alarmist) subject of this post. One day last week I was driving through Hull on my way to meet a client when I became aware that the other lane of the road contained a convoy of military vehicles. Nothing rare in that, but I didn't immediately recognise the trucks as being in British use. They turned out to be Unimogs (and a lone Iveco LMV)
|A Belgian Army Unimog on a camping holiday. Not in Hull.|
As I began to pass the convoy I noticed that the number plates sported small Belgian flags. There were about 30 vehicles in all.
An alternative to my invasion theory is that they had been on an exercise at a Ministry of Defence establishment - probably the Driver training school at Leconfield in East Yorkshire.
So, exercise or invasion - what do you think?
