These three DAS Island machines are of particular interest - mainly because only two appear on the Dennis database as it stands. The ET is an "extra" so far as I'm concerned, and if at all possible, I'd obviously very much like its chassis number. Those which I have shown are both quoted as FoTs, one being a 1980 RS (chassis no. RS130RA/313), and the other is the 1981 DF (chassis no. DF130LC/1042. As things stand, the ET has posed quite a poser !
