Airfix NAAFI Beverage Van 1:76
Outdoor catering cars have a proud history of serving the military and during the Second World War and were much appreciated by RAF personnel and returning aircrews on airfields.
Such vehicles were provided and staffed by organisations such as NAAFI (Navy, Army and Airforce Institution), YMCA (Young Men's Christian Association), WVS (Women’s Voluntary Service) and parish church groups. There were over 4000 'tea cars', as the YMCA called them, with many serving the RAF alongside catering cars from other organisations.
