30 BK 15 has an interesting history:

Struck off census from BAOR (British Army On the Rhine) 18/6/1970; Recovered by REME 32 Central Workshops 18/10/1972;  Struck off census to MVEE (Military Vehicle Engineering Establishment) & renumbered 01 SP 52 (SP = Special Project).


This may well have been as the prototype Mk 2 Pig. Recovered 2/4/1975 as 30 BK 15 for use in Northern Ireland. The smoke dischargers were to project Grenade Anti-Riot L11A1 which contained 23 CS pellets in each grenade.
