Merlin Report for Land Rover Contract Number FVE 22A/ 140

The request was successful.

Dear Royal Air Force,

I am writing from Germany and I have a request for a Land Rover Series III OP3, 109, LHD, ExMOD, that I bought about three weeks ago in Germany. I am now interested in anything about the cars Military life, especially if his current paint ( sand-yellow with black stripes ) was done in his Military life or by one of his later civilian owners

What I know until now is, that the car was ordered as a "109 Hardtop with Windows" in late 1983 and it was delivered to the Royal Air force in early 1984. In the german Registration Card it was first registered on March, the 15th, in 1984 and the first civilian owner was registered on March, the 26th, in 1999.

I found a Plate on the Seat-Base with the following contract Number : FVE 22A/ 140, Warrant Number 3762, Item Number 1. The Chassis Number is SALLBCAH2AA209652. Research in a book gave me the result, that the original Number Plate of the car might have been 88 KB 28 until 33, possibly 88 KB 29.

Unfortunately I have no further informations.

Is it possible to get a Merlin Report or a B-Card for this car ?

Yours faithfully,
Ralph Jacobs
