Danish Army Specific: Ford F 500 Custom shown as tractor truck used by the former 6th Danish Signal Battalion. The battalion had a total of 3 semi-trailers. 2 were delivered in the late 1950/early 1960s. A third was delivered in the mid 1970s when the shown tractors was superseded by DAF trucks. As these trucks were not quite up to the job, they were superseded by Mercedes LA1313 tractors around 1981.
The semi-trailer was used in a teletype platoon for preparing, transmitting and handling messages. In the background a Ford F 700 Custom in the same role.
