Hi Chaps I am new to the forum and thought I would share a few pics of my Matador 0853 5696 recovered from Bashley Saw Mill Hants on saturday. If any one knows any history I would be most greatfu as still looking for info on year of manufacture (think late 42 or early 43). The markings on the sand paint suggest service in Malta and then Italy. base refurb in May 53. I think it has a civ Reg 901 KPC ? as info from old photos (early 80's-90's).
