Ferret-Turreted Scout Car

The MK 2 Ferret wasn't actually a Mk 2 in respective of the Mk 1 - they were two separate types of vehicles.
The turreted Ferret was a Scout Car used by the recce troops of armoured regiments - it replaced the old Dingo Scout Car.
What we call the Mk 1 was actually designated as an armoured liaison vehicle for use in armoured regiments and armoured brigades - we had them in the Signal Platoon (Bn HQ). Later on, the infantry got Ferrets for their Recce Platoons as before they had operated with land-rovers.
