Dingo Days continue with the addition of photos of Canadian Dingo Scout Cars after the Dieppe Raid in 1942 via the German Bundesarchiv. Here's the link to the pics: http://www.warwheels.net/DaimlerDingoCanadianDieppeBundesarchive.html .

Thank you for the pictures post Patrick. Is the heavy bumper on Hound the factory one, or was it installed for the landing? Best regards.....Dale

You're welcome Dale. As for your bumper question, I'm pretty sure it was not a factory standard part. So, if I had to guess, I would say it was fitted for the landing. Hopefully someone else might be able to confirm either way.
