Danish Army Specific: Acquired from the British Forces just after WW II.
: By 1937 Albion had developed a 3 ton forward control 6 x 4 which became the BY1. It could carry a range of standard body types including cargo, breakdown, engineers and workshop. In June 1940 the BY1 was superseded by the BY3 with a 6-cylinder engine, and in May 1941 the BY3 gave way for the BY5 with a slightly larger power plant.
Also used with "Folding Boat Body No.1 Mk II" produced by Weymanns, and as bridging vehicle. The shown vehicle is a late-type version with full windscreen.
Produced production ceased in 1945.
