Brigadier John Rockingham was the commander of the 25th Commonwealth Brigade during the Korean war. This was the major Canadian Combat unit of that conflict.  Rockingham used the converted M8 as a command car fitted with both a High Power No.19 set and an R107 receiver. The turret was permanently fixed in position and a roof with two hatches was added.  The main armament has also been removed and the ports welded up.  The model was converted from the 1/35 Italeri M8 Greyhound kit.
