    Hi All,

    New Member.

    I have a 1985 Series 3 109 that was originally a red top vehicle at BATUS in Canada. I am trying to find out some history or pictures of the vehicles.

    It was released in 1997, so I'm hoping that somewhere out there some body took some photos.

    I have some info under the history tab on my web site below.

    Thanks in advance.

    I was at BATUS in 1991 after returning from Operation Granby (Gulf War 1991) I was Arty safety and our Call sign was '44'.

    This picture from your website shows Art Safety Red Top '44' although I can say it wasn't me so probably pre 91

    Due to age and terrible memory I have forgotten who call sign '77' related to

    Looking around the web for photos and video of BATUS I was reminded of the size of the training area, I was also reminded of the deaths that have occurred there and the road we called the Rattlesnake that has many a marker along its route where soldiers training have perished.
