    Some vehicles were pristine because they were the CO's favourite and others were like rolling junkyards. But, its also neglect as an art form. I recall a lovely Unimog engineering vehicle allowed to rot, rather than fund an overhaul and a few years ago, a mobile crane in the Base Workshops, rotting, despite it's active status,from want of paint on it's critical functioning parts.

    Some of the GR’s are off road ... literally (as in “the hollow”) but there were definitely some on the road a few months ago

    Wait till they start adding EVs to the white fleet

    It just suddenly rotted away into organic mush? That would be a surprise for the driver
    'He died who loved to live,' they'll say,
    'Unselfishly so we might have today!'
    Like hell! He fought because he had to fight;
    He died that's all. It was his unlucky night.
