Sawn off Daimler (BR312)

Sawn-off Daimler (BR312)
includes one Sawn-off Daimler with commander figure.

C Squadron’s experience since landing just after D-Day has taught the regiment that small, agile troops of scout cars can perform scouting duties better than the more cumbersome armoured cars. As such, in July they re-organised so that each squadron would have six light platoons of two scout cars and three heavy troops of a scout car and two armoured cars.

In order to fulfil the need for additional scout cars to meet the new squadrons’ demands, the crews and the divisional REME used their ingenuity to bodge us additional scout cars from our excess armoured cars. Removing the turret and front mudguards from a Daimler Armoured Car lowers its weight and ground pressure enough to convert it to a versatile light reconnaissance vehicle. These field-modified cars are known as Sawn-off Daimlers, or simply SODs, within the Inns of Court.
