书籍说明 ： 第一辆劳斯莱斯装甲车是一辆私人拥有的汽车，在法国的一个船坞里装着机关枪和数量有限的装甲车牌。1914年，皇家海军航空局在佛兰德斯的一个中队使用过这种飞机。在海军第一王的支持下，温斯顿·丘吉尔的版本越来越多，更好的版本随之而来，直到1915年，大约有100个版本被移交给了陆军。正如阿尔伯特·斯特恩爵士所说，"他们在世界各地寻找战争"，不久，劳斯莱斯装甲车就远至德国西南非洲、西部沙漠、加利波利、中东和印度西北边境。
All of them used the classic 40/50hp Silver Ghost chassis. They were fast, silent and reliable but above all strong. “A Rolls in the desert is above rubies” said Lawrence of Arabia and the Duke of Westminster would have agreed with him following his famous raid to rescue the kidnapped crew of the steamship HMS Tara. At least one car accompanied the adventurous MP Oliver Locker-Lampson on his adventures in Russia. After the war, unable to find a better model the War Office simply copied the original Admiralty design with minor improvements. If that was not enough the Royal Air Force also acquired some to support their operations in the Middle East. A new design with a larger body and dome shaped turret also appeared for service in India. They also served in Ireland and even, briefly in Shanghai.
