specific: The tankers shown was used by the
Danish Brigade, which was stationed in Germany after WW
II. Apparently the truck to left is a water tanker and
the one to the right a petrol tanker.
Historical: The OYC was supplied in
chassis-cab form for other manufacturers to supply the
body. Water tankers were almost exclusively produced by
Butterfields, and petrol tanker by, among others,
Butterfields and Aluminium Plant & Vessel.
Early models of the water tanker had hand-operated pumps
- later version were fitted with a 1.000 gallon/hour
power operated pump. Duplicate sets of filtering
equipment were stored, with the delivery hoses, in a
locker at the rear of the tank. The truck could be
disguised as a GS truck by fitting a canvas tilt.
Approximately 2.000 vehicles produced.
The fuel tanker had a fire-screen fitted behind the cab,
and the exhaust was re-routed to avoid hot gasses coming
into contact with petrol vapour from the load. The body
had two compartments and was fitted with a hand-operated
pump and 2 delivery hoses. Approximately 4.200 vehicles
The water tanker carried 2.275 liters (500 gallons) and
the petrol tanker carried 3.640 liters (800 gallons).
