Karl Enzmann, from Switzerland, has contacted me, wondering if anyone can help him find out where his 1944 Jeep was used during the war. He knows most of its history post-war and has some blackand-white pictures dating back to when his grandfather Emil Enzmann sold it to a farming family, after the war.
