The Vehicle ‘Oxford’
In 1956, six young men arrived in Singapore from London. Not by boat but in two Series I Land Rovers.
Known as “The First Overland” expedition, the team drove two Series I Land Rovers – 'Oxford' and 'Cambridge' – 10,000 miles through three continents of deserts, jungles and mountains.
In 2019, the 'Oxford' returns to Singapore for one last adventure – the adventure home to London.
