Default ANZAC Day Jeep's

Jeeps found their way into many countries armed forces during WWII including Australia and New Zealand.
Here are some old photos of Jeeps being used over the years at home and during our countries conflicts overseas.
Unfortunately I only found one old photo of a Jeep being used by New Zealand forces but it includes the then NZ Prime Minister near the front line in Italy during WWII.

Here's an early model Jeep being used by NO. 3 Squadron, RAAF Libya North Africa 1941


Early model Jeep on an airfield near Darwin


Australian Army Jeep at MILLINGIMBI ISLAND, NT. 1943


84TH and 85th Mobile Cinema Unit, Brisbane 1943

First Jeep unloaded at Kokoda, New Guinea.


Jeep used by Australian forces in action on the Kokoda Track (AKA Kokoda Trail).


Milne Bay, New Guinea. 1943


New Guinea 1943


By the end of WWII, Jeeps were a common sight but these Allied POW's who had just been liberated from Changi Prison in Singapore had never seen a Jeep before and took a moment to admire this model used by Australian Forces

No Jeeps in WWI.
This is my Grandfather in Egypt during WWI.
Shortly after this photo was taken, he shipped to Gallipoli then on the Western Front in Belgium and France.
Luckily he was not listed among the fallen during the war and lived to a very old age - he attended the ANZAC Day marches for as long as he could.
