VIDEO - Dark Class construction

Postby Dave Mills » Wed Sep 21, 2011 8:37 am

This very short film clip shows the aluminium alloy frames being fitted before being clad in timber for the Royal Navy Coastal Forces Dark Class MTBs. The five Burmese Darks had riveted aluminium sheeting to prevent premature rotting and marine attack in the warm tropical seas.
(Ignore any date stamps that were recorded during the video tape copying from original film)
