(Both photos are in the public domain.)

The tailboard is double hinged and will make a step when opened. The canvas is effectively a door in the centre.

There were two versions of this ambulance- one as you see it here, and one that used the Standard Flying 14 Car body from the centre pillar forward. There was also a van on this chassis. Mind you, there are four different versions of the Standard Utility, starting with one solely for the RAF from about 1938, based on the Flying 12 Chassis (model BB), then the subject of the airfix kit (Model DC) using the Flying 14 Chassis, and then two models using the Standard Military Chassis (based on the Flying 14 chassis but beefed up)

Cheers daveh; that helps a lot. Only one ambulance seen here http://www.armyvehicles.dk/standard12hp.htm made its way to Denmark identified by the license plate as a vehicle of Army Air Corps Sjælland detachment - which I'm going to build by converting the kit Tilly. :D
