SdKfz 251/8/C/riveted, at Bovington Tank museum
Its a early production riveted /c version. It was a /8 (ambulance).
It was captured by British forces in the desert. One of the pictures taken after its capture shows a barrel strapped to its right exterior. In the collection since the capture. Dry-stored ever since. The riveting-pattern differs from the ex-Aberdeen vehicle in Austin. It has a special step near the rear doors that identifies it as an ambulance. The big strips on the inside are not standard for an anbulance though. It has a hole in the right side armour where the barrel has been.
John Morrison sends this picture January 1999 of the unrestored interior ca 1975-1980.
Pictures of the presentation after the repaint
In 2017 it stil lacks its rear doors and most of its interior. It's in storage in the big hall not visable from the balcony.
