Thomas Toys No. U.S. Army Loudspeaker Truck

We've covered the history of Thomas Toys before so I won't cover old ground again. In the vein of recent posts of small plastic army trucks we have this nice little Army loudspeaker truck in OD HP. Back in the day it was common for toy companiies to produce the same toy in a wide variety of colors. Those that were olive drab or olive green were simply assumed to be Army trucks whether or not they were lettered 'U.S. Army'. I posted a red & yellow civilian version of this truck - albeit broken - back on Dec 5, 2014. The truck measures 3 7/8" (9.84cm) L x 1 1/4" (3.17cm) W x 1 3/4" (4.44cm) H. Enjoy!
