Wanting to replace their outdated light vehicles the U.S. Military received three tenders. Bantam Car Company was the initial winner but couldn’t meet demand so the job went to Willys-Overland Motors. Willys was to take the best design features of the three submitted tenders and build a standardized vehicle. Eventually in order to meet an even greater demand the Ford Motors Company was asked to build a similar vehicle. During World War II there was a total of 647,870 Jeeps produced by the three companies; Willys-Overland produced 362,841 of them.

The 400 Squadron RCAF was formed in 1932 as 10 (Army Cooperation) Squadron but it wasn’t until 1934 that they began flying. In 1941 the squadron was renamed “400 (City of Toronto) Squadron. Throughout WWII the No. 400 Squadron operated from 21 different airfields carrying out combat missions and reconnaissance flights. No. 400 Squadron RCAF was a component of No. 39 (Reconnaissance) Wing, No. 83 Group, Second Tactical Air Force, RAF. No. 400 Squadron Jeeps were supplied by the RAF.
