    Snow White premiered at the Carthay Circle Theatre on December 21, 1937, followed by a nationwide release on February 4, 1938. It was a critical and commercial success, and with international earnings of $8 million during its initial release briefly held the record of highest-grossing sound film at the time.

    'Snow White' (RKO) is in its 27th week at the New Gallery, London, and will continue to be shown through the regular London release dates, Sept. 19 for North London, and Sept. 26 for South London. There is a likelihood that the New Gallery first-run will run until Christmas. Picture reported to have exceeded $500,000, passing Radio City's five-week mark, which just fell short of the $500,000 mark.[24]

    Looking through the V4 of the vehicle names spreadsheet, I see multiple references to Bashful, Doc, Dopey, Happy, Grumpy, Sleepy, AND Sneezy.

    Dave is that guy who sits at the pool bar and consumes 14 beer, without leaving his seat. Meanwhile, the kids are leaving the pool with burning eyes.

    Only entry holes here
    Number 3 is an hole made by an 88 millimetre HEAT grenade of our recoilless anti-tank weapon 55 S 55. Number 1s and the number 2 are hits by APBC shells of the Soviet 100 mm tank gun .

    Checked the 100 mm shell type from Wiki, and corrected it to APBC.

    Is that from the Channel Islands?

    The sign on the left evidently reads "Chocolates" but in French surely it would be "Chocolats"? Similarly "Tobaccos" not "Tabac".

    Spot on!

    Rue Cauchez, St. Martins, Guernsey.

    As scant reward for superb response an immediate post-war image from the Channel Islands (FT17 being put to better use)

    Kind regards, always,

    Jim.

    Jim, I don't think that's an FT17 in your picture - it has a bow cannon! Char B1 maybe?

    These however are FT17s and there is a funny story to go with them. At the start of WW2, the Canadian army had virtually no tanks - certainly none to train on. We asked the Americans for help and in 1940 they sold us a lot of old FT17s (apparently 180). These were sold as "scrap metal" to get around US neutrality.
