    in WWII, my father was an Army MP Lieutenant(later Captain) stationed in England, courted my English mother, no doubt in a MP Jeep, they married and I was born nine months later in an English hospital. My dad brought us both home from the hospital in a Military Police Jeep. So I suspect this story about WWII romances in a Jeep has a ring of truth to it!
    After Dad got out of the service in early 46 and Mom and I were able to join him in Illinois, Dad bought a 1946 CJ2A(couldn’t buy a passenger car) and mom got pregnant with my sister. Dad brought both of them home from the hospital in Galesburg in that CJ2A. That Jeep was our family car for a couple of years.
