    This is the surveyor's ute on a geophysical survey, camped at Haydon, between Normanton and Croydon, in 1963. The surveyor's helper, being somewhat lazy, had a habit of grabbing any full jerrican for their spare fuel, rather than going to the trouble of filling it out of the tanker. One day he grabbed the cook's supply of kerosine.... The Landrover did not run too well after they refuelled in the field.

    Found a lot more Land Rover pictures but copyright issues with many of them.
    State Library of SA have pictures of the Bluebird land speed record attempt with Land Rover in the pictures, can only view at the library.
