Willys Jeep   2"   1"

This Willy's MB jeep appears as the World War II transport for the US Navy Seabees, Naval Construction Battalions (CBs), hence the name! The Battalion was founded in March 1942 as a military construction unit comprising 7000 active personnel and nearly 7000 reservists.

The men were skilled workers but also trained to take up arms and resume a military role when required. One of their several mottos is a reminder of this 'We build, we fight'. In 2017, the Seabees celebrated their 75 years of service without having changed from their original concept.

Willys Jeep

Designed to meet a US Department of War requirement for a light, cross-country reconnaissance vehicle, the Willys MB Army Jeep was manufactured between 1941 and 1945. The Willys Jeep was the original version of what would later become one of the most iconic vehicles in American history, evolving into a popular civilian vehicle that is still being produced today. The Willys Jeep was a compact, four-wheel drive vehicle that rapidly became one of the most prolific vehicles of WWII. More than 640,000 standardized versions were produced, with 8,690 other versions built over a period of four years.
