    I lived in Libya between 1962 and 1967 and there was a lot of this WW2 "junk" lying around in the desert at almost every turn. A friend of my late father's shipped a totally complete and drivable Kubelwagon in desert paint back to the UK as part of his officers shipping allowance...just before we were all booted out of the country shortly after the Six Day War.
    And the kubel ended up....... where?

    Great that it was saved instead of suffering the fate of the 'Lady Be Good.'

    No idea, it is probably still here somewhere in the UK. The regiment was 5DG so based at that time at the home of the RAC at Bovington camp just across the from the tank museum.

    My younger brother and I had quite a collection of WWII "junk" from German helmets to machine-gun relics which we had to leave behind....no room in the two suitcases each person (civilian) was allowed to leave Libya with.

    I collect, therefore I am.

    I suspect there is still much to be found in Cyrenaica as the country was still pretty much closed to tourists.
