 Australian LP4 light armoured car production      
The LP4 was manufactured in the Ordnance factory at Marybyrnong, a Melbourne suburb in 1935/6. These images come to us via Bob Moseley of Adelaide. At least two of these have survived, Bandicoot in Adelaide and Porcupine in Melbourne. Porcupine also attended Year of the Armoured Car at Corowa in 2006.
