There was a US version as well,

“O Lord God, let me not be disgraced in my old days.”

The Cushman 53.

Cushman made golf carts and mail delivery vehicles as well. IIRC, they even made ice cream vending carts.

Good job they didn't mix them up for an airdrop.

Just imagine - the hitherto little known 17th Airborne Div's 535th Golf-Cart regiment :-)

Have you seen some those Golf Carts today? They could go head to head with an M1 Abrams.   :o And put a couple of Snowbirds in it late for their Tee Time and you've got a Death Machine.  :worried:

That regiment no longer exists. They were amalgamated with other regiments in 2006.

I think it was before then, b/c I remember being at their museum at Stirling Castle in 2004 and there was a video about them shutting down the regiment.

Knew a guy who was a legal clerk in an artillery battalion.  The officers joked that he was the most dangerous man in the unit.
It was decided that the organization was all wrong.  They should be a artillery clerk in a legal battalion.

I think you're missing the important point.

What happened to the ice cream?
