I was clearly slacking last year when  I missed this image turn up on eBay in the USA featuring an army vehicle test taking place on the Allt y Bady. It comes from contemporary press archives and if anyone knows how to locate a decent copy please feel free to spill the beans. We know from other material that the British Army quite extensively used the Llangollen area to evaluate vehicles for procurement in a series of tests using the sever terrain of the Horseshoe Pass, Ruabon Mountain and the Area between Llangollen and Glyn Ceiriog. This picture was taken in 1932 on the Allt y Bady complete with parked half track truck.
