Husky / Corgi Juniors by Mettoy
#22a (Citroen Safari) Military Ambulance



In 1965 Corgi chose to make a military ambulance version of their #6a Citroen Safari ambulance as the new Husky #22.
It was identical to the #6 civilian ambulance in every way except for its colour, satin dark olive green.
It was always packaged in the standard red on white generic blisterpack and deleted from the range once stocks sold out early in 1968.

mileage from the Citroen Safari casting.

Above: The decals were the same as those used
on the 6a Citroen Safari civillian ambulance.
