Ex-RAF tanker to sell in Wiltshire

| 5 Oct 2012

One of the more interesting lots at Richard Edmonds’ 26 October sale at Castle Combe will be a 1943 AEC Bowser Petrol Tanker expected to make £9500-12,000.

Surprisingly, it’s the second time that an AEC tanker has crossed the block at the auction house after another example, the one that fuelled 617 Squadron – the famous Dambusters – sold for £19,250 last year, more than £4000 over its estimate.

This latest example has come from Bruton in Somerset and is totally restored.

“It is great to have another one after the interest from last year,” said auctioneer Richard Edmonds. “This is a very different sale to our usual car auctions, with four tractors also included.”
