Although the Land Rover is thought of as one of the most versatile vehicles in use by the British Military, it never served in WWII. A batch was delivered to the British Army in 1949 & after thorough testing was found to be an ideal platform for many military uses. A more rugged, similar type of vehicle, the Austin Champ, was also introduced at around the same time but this was only around five years owing to the continuing success of the Land Rover.
