A posed DND PR shot that shows two Hillers and Two Ferret scout cars of the Recce Sqn 8th Canadian Hussars taken about 10 kms
south of the Mohnesee in April 1962. The pilots of the hovering aircraft are Lt PC Dudley RCD and Capt HC Ross LdSH. The pilot of
the other Hiller is Lt GP March 8CH. The crew commanders of the Ferrets are observers from the Troop with Sgt AR Brown on the left
and Sgt D. Millar on the right. The NCO's are wearing their RCD titles and badges since the pilots and observers retained their unit
identities when posted to the 8th CH and only rebadged to FGH in the fall of 1962.
