Humber Snipe or Super Snipe Open Staff Car......

"Of all the commanders, probably the most notable user of the Humber Snipe staff car was Field Marshal Montgomery. He used it throughout the campaigns in North Africa and in Northwest Europe ? the car was dubbed 'Old Faithful', which is a nickname sometimes applied to all Humber automobiles for their reliability."
