  1. Found this online here: https://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/forums/forum/wehrmacht-uniforms-and-equipment/achtung-panzer-forum/948167-fresh-find-five-panzer-werkzeugkasten-mit-inhalt-identify-please#post7183007 Now it's possible that the term applies to No. 3 tool box and that the toolbox is different for each model of vehicle but thought it might help.
  2. i'm used to the maintenance british military vehicles being for the bloody minded and those of a masochistic nature. but this activity seems to have been designed by a particularly skilled sadist determined to break the will of anyone foolish enough to want to own a ferret 🤣😂 congratulations on beating the 'designer' on this one and thank you for sharing the 'kowledge'
  3. is it not one of these - Jupiter Invader Pump? http://www.jupiterinvaderpump.com
  4. Hi Jon, haven't read this web page in detail bit it lists different accessories for the MG34 and one of them is the Zuberhorkasten, and has various pictures of lists of associated equipment. Hope it may help. https://www.bergflak.com/ezvkasten.html Cheers Julian
  5. I think this thread would make a great book once the project is complete. It's much more detailed than what has been published to date on the TWC Panther.
  6. It's great, and often overlooked, the important contribution to keeping historic information which would otherwise be lost. Kudos to you Wally, your friend and everyone who squirrels away stuff that would otherwise be lost to history.
  7. I think the blue thing is a dovetail jig for use with a woodworking router, similar to this found on the web
  8. Hi Rotes 75, do you have additional information on your fathers regiments/battalion as this may help tie down where he was being sent.
  9. Like a lot of other I have been finding this thread very interesting and it has prompted be to do much more investigation/reading on the web with couple of books on the way too. I thought I would share this web page that I found (getting better at this tech stuff) http://www.wwiiequipment.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=125:british-equipment-losses-at-dunkirk-and-the-situation-post-dunkirk&catid=50:other-articles&Itemid=61 Why lists what was lost but also looks at was was left in the UK and how the equipment situation improved between 1st June and later in the year when an invasion might have occurred. the headline numbers on the National Army Museum web site are given as: the BEF had suffered 68,000 casualties. Most of its equipment was lost, including 64,000 vehicles, 20,000 motorcycles and 2,500 guns This also chimes with the information in the Bovington Tank museum video (on youtube) about just how mechanised the British army was, particularly in comparison with the 'modern mechanised german army'. IIRC he listed the german army as having 120,000 vehicles for the whole army of approx 130 Division (can't recall the exact number) So 10 British divisions has the same amount of vehicles a the whole german army. No wonder captured vehicles from the fall of France continued to be used throughout the war.
  10. As always a pleasure to see the detail and quality of your work. waiting for the next instalment 🙌
  11. just watched a really good youtube movie by the curator of Bovington tank museum on the battle of Arras. Well worth watching. If I wasn't so poor at tech I would post the link - sorry
  12. Quick 'Google' found this. Gwen Eagle was a 40ft long twin screw motor cruiser built by William Osborne Ltd in Littlehampton in 1938. Her owner, Donald Hudson, lived in Hove and was a member of the Sussex Motor Yacht Club in Brighton. There is also a brief mention in the book 'The miracle of Dunkirk'
