 CMPs at Beltring 2000 > Maple Leaf Up at Beltring
Although I have only been to Beltring in 1999 and 2000, I understand that every year more and more CMPs appear at the show. This pictures below only show a selection of photographs of the CMPs that were present. If anything, it was the largest selection of CMPs I have seen in one place. Five days were not enough to view them all in detail!
Please follow the links on the bottom of this page for more web sites showing the myriad of vehicles that could be seen at the Millennium Edition of this magnificent event.

Fine line-up of superbly restored early cab CMPs: Nigel Dawe's F8 11 cab, John Malpass' F15A 11 cab, Pete Ashby's C15A 12 cab and Steve Stone's C30 11 cab. 

Nigel Watson and his early Canadian Mk I* Universal Carrier, painted in the colours of the Indian Army, with whom his father served as an officer.
The Dodge T212 8-cwt truck on the right belongs to Alan Tooes (see below for more pictures).

Nigel Watson goes everywhere with his carrier and thus attracts many veterans, ranging from ladies who during the war cleaned carrier parts after shipment, to drivers who 'danced' their carriers. 
Nigel's knowledge about carriers and the men who crewed them is astounding. This picture shows him telling a small crowd one of his fascinating stories. 

Front and right rear compartment of Nigel's carrier.

Alan Tooes is the owner of this rare dodge T212 8-cwt truck. It is one of only a few surviving examples of this rare Canadian truck. Alan wishes to embark on another project, and is therefore this T212 is for sale.
