New Zealand Divisional Cavalry units in Italy

A Ford Lynx Scout Car of the New Zealand Divisional Cavalry rushes along a dusty road in the Atina Belmonte area on 30 May 1944, during the Italian Campaign. The photo illustrates the difficulties faced by the Division as it advanced along narrow roads through the rough, mountainous terrain of the Italian peninsula.

Thank you for making this picture available online. Hopefully it is useful to know the vehicle in the photo is a Ford Lynx Scout Car not a Daimler Dingo as cited in the caption.
