Notes: I would not say that any Champ mileage was original, although on this one it may be, because if there was any fault on an instrument panel in military service the whole panel was substituted for a new one (or at least the speedometer). The fact of the panel change, and the mileage when the panel was changed, would have been recorded in the vehicle record book and these books were destroyed by the army when Champs were disposed of.
