    Just love this quote from kmbizal, 'Personally, I think the Scammell is a neat truck. Kinda homely, yet appealing. These are one well-built recovery truck.'

    Ah so you are still around here Bernard. "Shot putting" not really & not a Russian device but was used by another large army of the time.

    Well Tony the British Army were up to using these all the time. Not Indian Army although this has been ascribed to them, this particular design was attributed to a large Army/Empire of the time. Not an oven but special ovens were sometimes used in association with this installation in question. I will now answer your earlier reply.

    Yes well done Tony it is indeed a special sort of latrine. Just need to get the Army in question for the full points.

    right!! You are now pushing my military/political history.So we have 1905? Who was about with Large Army /Empire. French, humm, they'd had the *** kicked out of them by Prussia in 1871 and were still recovering. Austro Hungary? they'd had the Prussian treatment a few years earlier. Germany as it now was, still developing. So I'll take a punt on the Otterman Empire.

    Yes Russia wa sbaout, but would thier army have the technical skill to wield a shovel at that time?
