Alex, who directs Tahiti-Pacifique Magazine, forwarded these two photos.

For unknown reasons, the driver of this DUKW (thanks Bob) must have had quite a drive!

Alex writes, “Photo of 1954 peace treaty delegation between the French and the Vietminh. The French army used mostly US WW2 surplus equipment in that war. The US took over after the 1954 defeat, Indochina became Vietnam, the Vietminh became Vietcong and the issue was the same 20 years later. “

    Top photo is a GMC DUKW (duck) 2 1/2 Ton amphibious truck, not a seep (GPA). Both the amphibious jeep and the DUKW were designed by Rod Stephens, of the naval architecture firm Sparkman & Stephens.

    The aircraft is a French Nordatlas, a smaller twin boom transport, a mini C-119 if you will.
