  1. [ATTACH=CONFIG]118462[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]118463[/ATTACH] I think I have seen this "pyramid" several times. It was located along the coastal road between Tripoli and Khoms (Homs). Not a pyramid actually but an old Italian fortification dating back to the time of the conquest of Libya after WWI - I had always wanted to take photos of it... and have always postponed it until I could not do it anymore. Shame on me.
  2. Recalling an old photograph of the entrance of Hun (Jofra Oasis-group) which I do not have at hand at the moment - I suggest these photos were taken down there.
  3. Many thanks for this additional information :-)
  4. Thank you very much for your quick assistance :-) I would go then for a CROSSLEY IGL 2 - is that correct? @ Ian - unfortunately I shall not distribute the photos now (except above snippets for identification) since they are foreseen to be used in a new book.
  5. ...after a longer time of absence here (I was rather busy with vintage aircraft and civilian types of cars) I come back with some ID requests. A friend has asked me to help him with a book-project. ID of photos is a topic but I am better in landscapes of Egypt and mainly Libya than in types of vehicles. I post some snippets of the photos here - and hope that somebody may be able to tell us what type of vehicles they are. Many thanks for your assistance in advance :-)

    Happy 2010!

    Already years have passed since the first post. I am no longer living in Libya but still try to remain "connected to the desert".
  7. The Italian occupation of Somalia was brought to an end in 1940 if I do not recall entirely wrong. Or in other words: The Italians have lost Somalia again before the T34 even entered service with the Red Army.

    I wish a happy 2014 to all members of this forum and their beloved ones.
  9. A very impressive achievement. Congratulations!
  10. Tom - did you find this Minerva in the Czech Republic or was it imported from Belgium?
  11. Oh, no. That is a very sad news. My deepest regrets to his wife.
  12. To me the moral winner is the old Ford. Definitely. Though a completely defenseless vehicle, they had cowardly stripped its wheels so that it could not escape anymore and had nothing left than to be smashed by the "tank". But even then, the Galaxy resisted very long ...and in fact the driver of the "tank" should have closed the hatch so that he could have left the arena without the spectators recognizing him.
  13. Jack; I browsed McGuirks book for MG-mounts. Nothing. There is only one clearly visible where the MG was fixed on the back of the (wooden) loading bay. But most of the LCP vehicles did not even have an MG fixed...
