UPDATE: Modeler builder Frederic Dete plans to create a model of this Mobile Cinema jeep and trailer. He’d like to make contact with David, but I no longer have his email. If he could contact me, I’ll put you in touch with Frederic.

Original Post  Apr 27, 2013: David was going through his father’s items and discovered photos of his father’s Mobile Cinema Unit in New Guinea.

Warren alerted me to a whole pile of war time Jeep images at the Australian War Memorial Online.  I thought the Mobile Cinema Unit was an unusual group, so here are some images.  Click on the images for additional information from Australia. (See some jeeps on their side, here)
