The pictures below shows the interior and some of the Clansman intercom / radio harness.
Aluminium ID plate as fitted to every Ferret often missing.
There are at least four different versions of this plate one of which is 3/4 of the size of these later aluminium plates.
Each plate has part of the hull number stamped into it plus base repairs and the date that those were carried out.
Blank Plate subtle difference to the plate above.
Hull Shocker as used in Northern Ireland in the seventies a rare item (a term highly over used especially on e-bay)

All three front hatches had been modified with the use of a gas axe to fit FV432 periscopes on 00CC09.
When entering or exiting the Ferret do not use the front or rear hatch's as a means to lever you're self in or out of the Ferret unless you fancy having Ferret fingers. What's Ferret fingers you ask its when the hatch has closed unexpectedly on you're finger in the worse case scenario severing or breaking a finger or two. Not had that happen to me yet!

NOS Sterling / Sten Magazine bin (incorrectly spelled not by me I may add).
Another Version of the Sterling or Sten Magazine holder.
Document Holder some times fitted inside and is also to be found mounted inside the large side bin fixed to the escape hatch.

Petrol Tank and mountings.
As bought from a local dealer.... The ironic bit I stripped all of the equipment of this petrol tank and then bought it off e-bay three years later double doh doh!
Night Intensifier as fitted to some MK 1/2 and MK 1 & 2's ?
Fitted with a CVR(T) mounting
Wonderful piece of equipment I tried it at night with the curtains closed and no lights on. It did a great job of highlighting all the junk in the spare bedroom!
