    I find airfield vehicles oddly interesting. Possibly because they're often a bit unusual and kept going for a longer than normal life. 
    It's a fair bet the Land Rover is ex-RAF. The matching R reg suggests the TACR2 (Truck, Aircraft Crash Rescue 2) and the Land Rover were both given civil plates when they were acquired from military surplus around the end of 1977.
    The lack of MOT history suggests they've stayed offroad (/on an airfield) since.
    TACRs were airfield emergency vehicles used by the RAF and Royal Navy. 
    TACR1s were based on an uprated series II or III chassis. 
    TACR2s were based on the Carmichael Commando 6 wheeled chassis http://www.range-rover-classic.com/Home/land-rover-brochures/range-rover-specials/carmichael-ltd---uk


    GEC were at Rochester in some form or other from 1967 to 1998  (https://www.baesystems.com/en-uk/heritage/Rochester). The GEC logo on the LandRover could be due to GEC taking on the management of the airfield at the start of 1979 (https://rochesterairport.co.uk/about/history/).

    Thank you for collecting all this information together and sharing it.
    I've lived around here for 40 plus years and have shamefully never taken much interest in the heritage that's right on my doorstep.
