Anyone who loves the Land Rover Marque will enjoy reading these books.
Easily available on Kindle.
And a good, highly interesting and informative read too.

Nice pics!! Historic!! Although the Series I seems to be a Police 14 vehicle. The Indian Army as you know, sadly never used the Land Rover.

You may not get to see these beauties operating in the Darjeeling hills anymore. West Bengal government is proposing to ban them for safety reasons
