  2. There was a QOY Sqn at Cramlington, at the time, D (NH) Sqn, I served twelve years there, we used, Fox, Sabre and Scimitar, as well as other vehicles, they are now C&S Sqn at Fenham Bks Newcastle, with R-Wmik

    CVR(W) Fox

    I'm currently helping to restore/rebuild a CVR(W) Fox, I'm in need of a drivers instrument and switch panel. The current one fitted has a damaged multi pin socket, 3 u/s switches, and the fuse holder has degraded and is now starting to fall to pieces, so thought easier to replace then repair, if anyone has any idea where I can get one, or point me in the right direction I'd be greatly appreciative.
  12. I served on Sabre, normal dress on exercise was full combats and when mounted crewman helmets. When dismounted, again full combats,Mk 6 ballistic helmet and wearing webbing. Bergan that was used to hold personnal kit was of the Other Arms Pattern, commonly referred to as a turtle pack.The Bergan was stored either in the rear turret bin or the rear hull bin, along with the roll mat and sleeping bag. The webbing was normally wrapped round the turret hatches for the turret crew and round the smoke grenade dischargers on the commanders side for the driver. We were issued with L85A1 rifle issued with iron sights, as an aside as we no longer had a GPMG which we could dismount, if possible I would sign out a L86A1 which could be used in an OP or carried on a foot patrol/recce for a bit more firepower. The kit above was what we were issued to wear, however as per normal, bits of civvy or other bits of kit were added, I for example wore a DPM Barbour waxed jacket, as the issued waterproof were pretty useless until we got Goretex.
  13. The Light Dragoons at Catterick, have a Sherman gate guard that was a 13/18H vehicle, as they, along with the 15/19H were amalgamated to form the LD, there is a picture on the site somewhere, I'll see if there's a link somewhere
  14. Ref entry 5 LAD 15/19H, I was in 15/19H at the time and we were stationed at Alanbrooke Barracks in Paderborn, will try and see if I can scource any in service pictures.
  15. http://m0obu.net/prc-320-green-radio.html, check this link
  16. The KFS was kept in an item made of the same material, probably 1.5 inches wide, carried on ex in energa pouch on 58 webbing pouch.
  17. I seem to remember the seals that are on the Scorpion turret roof are the same as the Sabre ones, remember that the seals on Cmdrs hatches are on a steel band and bolt to the roof, where s the gnrs ones just glue to the roof.
  18. Looks brilliant, well done.

    Tommy helmet.

    I believe they were originally designed to protect the head from air burst shells whilst in the WWI trenches
  20. Yes the same issue, if towed without removing the sun gears no lube pump running so potential of damage
  21. You are after a Larkspur B Type Harness, have a look on Wireless to the Warrior, search for control harness some info on harness types and the boxes needed for the two different ones, A and B.
