1940's Vintage Vehicles for Hire!

Supplied by Austin Motor Co. Birmingham, this vehicle became a mobile canteen in 1941. GGX 765 was registered in London and issued to the National Fire Service for wartime use in the Walworth Road and surrounding areas and then passed to the Auxiliary Fire Service during the early 1950s for use as part of the Mobile Columns of Civil Defence.

 

She is shown today as an original example of many canteens used by the various support organisations during the Second World War. Being one of five left in existence today, the NAAFI Wagon is fully operational, serving refreshments in period enamel mugs with a wonderful collection of memorabilia including over 50 original cigarette packets, original tins, period enamelware and still has the original urns on show.

 

Joanne works the canteen dressed in wartime NAAFI overalls and original bunting is hung around together with bill boards showing wartime posters. A period radio plays 1940s music bringing back memories to all who see her. She has been in numerous films including Goodnight Mr Tom, Enigma, Charlotte Gray and Colditz. Joanne and the NAAFI Wagon also appeared on Countryfile in May 2008.
