Originally designed for the South African Army, the Marmon-Herrinton was a conglomeration of an American design, Canadian built chassis & engine and British-supplied armaments.

The MKI was used exclusively by the South African Union Defence Force while the MkII, depicted here, was also used by the British in North Africa. It was the first true four-wheeled drove armoured car in the Commonwealth forces.

887 MkIIs were produced of which 338 were used by the British.

The 6-ton vehicle had a crew of four; driver, co-driver/radio operator, gunner, co-gunner/mechanic. It was variously armed with a 0.5inch Boys anti-tank rifle, 2 .303 Vickers machine guns or 2 Bren guns.
