FOI Request for Military Service History and Maintenance Records of Ex Military Land Rover MG48AA

The request was successful.

Dear Ministry of Defence,
Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

I have recently purchased an ex-military Land Rover Defender HS TUM. I have checked the released MERLIN database and the vehicle service history is not contained in the available published MERLIN extract (the vehicle as having only recently come out of service). Therefore I submit a FOI request for the following information:

1) Vehicle military service history (Units served etc, as contained in MERLIN)
2) Any Maintenance Records / Work objects related to this vehicle.

Vehicle Registration: MG48AA
Description: TRUCK UTY MED (HS) 4X4 Softtop

Thank you very much in advance.

Yours faithfully,

W. Lika
