This is from the emlra forum:

Hi Guys,
I saw this and thought I would post it here in case anyone see`s it in their area.

Stolen on the night of tuesday june 5th from Oxenhope, West Yorkshire was my mate’s Series 1 Land Rover. He’s owned it for more than 20 years, driven it every day in all weathers and as you can imagine, he’s devastated.

It’s a 1956, 88 Inch, series 1, with a petrol engine. Full ex-British army spec with many distinctive features including the words ‘Training Aid’ painted in yellow on the door and a faded regimental badge. Registration is XSY 647. It has a canvas roof and a bonnet-mounted spare wheel. I know I get readers on this blog who have an interest in historic vehicles. Please pass the word around before the trail gets cold. If you do see it about – this is a rare and distinctive Landy – please tell the police or get in touch with Adrian at teninchwheels@gmail.com .

Please keep an eye out for it or help spread the word.

Oh dear Crying or Very sad very sorry to read this. I bet it's been nicked to sell on under a new 'identity'. Good examples of series 1s have appreciated in value so much lately. Not always a good thing Sad
