This is a long story, but in short my parents, brother and I drove overland from the UK across Africa in 1953. see http://thegreat1953trek.blogspot.com/
The friend we are now staying with has managed to get a 1953 identical Landrover and he is going to restore it exactly the same style as my father built the one that we travelled in. It has lots of additions!
This is the beginning with both myself and Gordon. I am looking forward to seeing photos as work progresses.
