Chris Wilkinson’s army surplus vehicles yard

The yard of the disused London Road station near where Orient Close is now, was home to a collection of army surplus vehicles owned by Chris Wilkinson. The vehicles were used in many films, television shows and local events. Rob Tillotson was given a job at the yard in the early 1990s and was able to caption in detail some of the photos shown below.

    Are there any images of the cast and crew from the RETURN OF THE SAINT episode ‘Yesterday’s Hero’ (1978), please?
    And, if so, would it be possible to post them on a social media account dedicated to the gentleman sleuth?
    Thank you very much for your time with this request.
