@harit,
Thanks for this thread. These vehicles never fail to fascinate. One request though. Can you please reduce the font size of your watermark and possibly move it to a corner? A coloured watermark [color probably got to do with your name :-) ] in the center with big font on a black and white snap is standing out loud. Thanks in advance.

1915 Napier Armoured car in Punjab. Notice the absence of a gun turret. The vehicle appears to be chain driven.

Here is something interesting, the text reads

" H.E, The Viceroy, Lord Wavell, during a visit to the military training centre watches a recruit receiving initial training in motor driving on a dummy "

This is about restoring the war cripples to self support, it is related to war and military so I thought it would be apt for this thread.

it reads

" Automobile mechanics is a popular trade with the disabled men at Queen Mary's Technical school, Bombay India "

Couple of army pictures, though the detail is very small.

These pictures date to 3rd June 1933 and were captured on the occasion of King George Vth's birthday celebrations when a parade was held to celebrate the King Emperor's birthday.

When "Passenger" car meets "Armoured" car.......Khyber Pass, NWFP.

This reminds me of the "Give Way to Uphill Traffic" signs on the Ghat roads many eons ago. I wouldn't have challenged an armoured car anyway!!!

A wartime U.S. Army Lincoln Zephyr (1942 ?) in Calcutta. The three stars seem to indicate it belonged to Lt.Gen Stilwell, of the Burma-China Ledo Road fame.


Some amazing war time Calcutta scenes here:
