    Monty in Post#2 in the Sartorial Elegance thread......sartorially elegant? Probably that was the Secret Weapon....what was the quote "the enemy think we are stupid...let's hope they keep thinking that way".

    A few photos relating to 10th Armoured Car Company, they came with a group to a man who later served as an SSM in 44th RTR

    Saw this on an antique car site. No info provided except that it is a 1925 Rolls.
    No idea what is going on but I like it. Anyone know what the gun is?

    Might be hunting rifles and a howdah pistol in the back seat.

    A touch excitable:

    The MG has now gone. Maybe more realistic restoration imposed:

    Really great pictures. The one with the hoist is especially interesting. I think they are lifting an engine with flywheel on the right end and exhaust manifold on the side facing the camera but what is the round object on the other end? Looks like maybe a big fan shroud but the orientation is wrong. Also looks like a transmission mounted vertically under the shrould-like object.

    Some where near Port Taufiq on the Suez canal in Egypt there is a Regiments worth of helmets buried.

    G Battery 5 RHA.

    After disembarking from convoy 1942

    We drew our Guns, quads, soft trucks etc. and at the first concentration point dug a huge hole and buried our pith helmets,

    it had been a Court Martial offence not to wear them for the past 7 weeks!

    I’ve got about 12 20mm models of that, some with a 6.3” howitzer rather than the 40 pdr gun

    I must say (albeit that it is off-topic) that the photo of the Vickers Medium and the light tank (although I cannot determine its model) are some of the best I've seen.

    Light tank looks like a Mk II to me

    In general I agree, but does this one have a cupola added?
