“I started collecting in 1987 after my father died and I sent away for his war record. That was when I discovered he had been a carrier officer in the British Indian Army. My search for a carrier began. By sheer chance I met Bill Ireland, and his Dingo Scout Car, who introduced me to the Scottish Military Vehicle Group. Through this group I met another member who was selling a carrier. After the purchase of this carrier my research began in earnest and eventually several years down the road I had collected a vast library of carrier information. I had also accumulated over these years other militaria associated with the vehicles I now owned and ran. Through having my carrier I met many other owners who all were continually in search of parts, information and drawings for their ongoing restoration work. I then decided the best way was to write a carrier specific book (which turned into a series of three!), so that those searching for information had a starting point. I hope others will take this research further.” Nigel Watson If you would like to contact us please use the email button below or write to us at: Watson Books, Mess Office, Denhead House, Fowlis, Dundee, DD2 5NP, Scotland, UK Author driving his MkI* Universal Carrier at the War and Peace Show.
