DUKW  or Duck !

We now have a WW2 DUKW amphibious vehicle to add to our growing collection the DUKW or Duck as they were refered to by the troops , were used to land troops on the Normandy Beaches for Dday 1944. Pictured with our vehicle is ex-Royal Army Service Corps Driver Ernie Covill, Ernie now 92 was a Duck driver in 1945 training for the possible War with Japan.

 

Our Duck has seen better days and now we want to undertake a full restoration of the vehicle and hopefully have this completed in time for the 75th anniversary of Dday in 2019, we hope to be able to take the Duck back to Normandy and partake in the Celebrations. If you would like to donate or sponsor some of the restoration please contact us here at the Motel.
