Tanker's Tuesday: Humber LRC

The Humber Light Reconnaissance Cars were lightly armored wheeled vehicles built on the chassis of Humber's 1938 Super Snipe passenger sedans. Production of the Mk I variant, known as "Ironside" (after General Edmund Ironside) and as the nickname "Humberette" (as a counterpart to the contemporary vehicle design Beaverette), production began in Jul 1940; although 1,200 Mk I vehicles were ordered, only 200 were built as Mk II was ready for production in 1941
