Immediately following the Chevrolet gun tractor re-entering service in the operating fleet, the space in the workshop was filled by 'Milly', the AEC Matador Generator Truck. This vehicle was partially restored many years ago, but slipped down the queue and was placed in storage.

With just a few months until the Dig For Victory Show 2017, there was a distinct need for an outdoor stage to house bands and performers. What better vehicle could there be? So Milly was fired up, brought in to the workshop and given a thorough makeover. The paint was thankfully dry before it reached the showground!

As always this could not have been done without the dedication of the Shopland Collection's volunteers.

Milly has now become the latest addition to the operating fleet and is available for hire.
