The British and Commonwealth forces operated a considerable reconnaissance element that scouted ahead of the main armoured force, searching for enemy troop positions and dispositions. The Humber Armoured Car was one such vehicle used for this role, more than able to hold its own against other light vehicles and infantry. From the parched deserts of Africa to the streets and fields of Europe, the Humber Armoured Car spearheaded the Allied advance.
Replacing the aging Humber Light Reconnaissance Car, the newly designed Humber Armoured Car quickly became a mainstay of the Commonwealth forces, particularly in the North Africa desert war. Initially armed with one 15mm and one 7.92mm Besa machine guns. The later Mk IV replaced the 15mm gun with a US M5 or M6 37mm anti-tank gun. So successful was the Humber that it served throughout the war, including in the North West Europe and Burma campaigns.
