This programme was shown on BBC NI on Wednesday night last, 27th March. A collection of video clips set around the border region between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland since partition. In the midst of it was some clear footage of an armoured Lancia, perhaps a Triota, that I hadn't seen before. If you have access to the BBC iPlayer (I don't  Sad), take a look.

The British armed forces used Lancia Triotas in a variety of applications during and after WWI. There were RNAS mobile anti aircraft guns in the Lord Mayor's parade in 1915 and armoured personnel carriers in Ireland during the war of independence. There were versions of the latter on railway wheels as rail defence vehicles, also some as gun tractors for field guns and others with a pitched roof of anti grenade mesh over the rear passenger compartment.
