  3. [h=1]311 Jeep at Tyndall Field WWII[/h]This jeep was automated and ran on a track. A plane target was attached to the wood post and the student gunners would shoot at the moving target. ( April 16, 1942.)
  4. Interesting modification to jeep screen.......
  5. I bought this photograph about a year ago and recently i have been researching the story, as you can see there are a lot of U boats that were bought in to Harwich. These were dealt with by the Harwich Force who played quite a large role during the first world war. 122 submarines and associated craft were bought to Harwich. Apparently the whole German U boat fleet was surrendered at Harwich Below are some links to tell the story of Harwich force and what happened to U boats after ww1. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harwich_Force http://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/17787 http://www.historyhouse.co.uk/articles/uboats_in_british_ports.html
  6. Hi all, I thought it was about time I started posting on my little restoration project. This is her, at her original home in Sth London. She was imported in 2008 from the Phillipines, and hasn't really been touched since. She is a bit of a miss-mash in reality, but she runs, drives and stops. The engine is from a Willys generator, the chassis is April'44, and the body is a composite ACM11, but has a number which puts it later than '44 I think?? Here she is at home, ready to be stripped to her last nut and bolt. After a few days... I've never seen welding as bad as there is on my chassis. Bubba really went to town on this one. Some of the shock mounts have been repaired four times!!! Here's a good pic of Bubba's work. Just look at that battery tray!!! I've started the restoration with the front axle. Pics will follow.... Thanks for looking Nige
  7. I visited the historic miltary vehicle collection at Camp Rena, home of the cavalery. It was cold, windy and wet, but they had several nice vehicles. Next time I visit will be in the summer! :-) Marty
  8. just this little item:thanx: ( Seabee utility or fire truck at Naval Amphibious Base Plymouth)
  9. Never seen one :wow: caption:- “Synthetic JEEPS – Here’s a jeep you simply blow up like you do a tire. It doesn’t go anywhere, of course, but it is designed to deceive at distances up to 500 feet. Pneumatic jeep, high fidelity model, is one of many used as decoys during the war. Tanks and guns were also made of rubber for purposes of subterfuge.
  10. would have thought they would have left the tyre here when it was put into production.Certainly easier for the driver to get out ...
  11. found this pic , thought it had great detail ......(US Marines aboard an LST en route to New Britain,Dec 44)

  13. Like this rarity... [h=1]Miller wears a special helmet to accommodate her camera as a war correspondent in World War II.[/h]Elizabeth 'Lee' Miller (23 April 1907 - 21 July 1977) was an American photographer. Born in Poughkeepsie, New York State in 1907, she was a successful fashion model in New York City in the 1920s before going to Paris to become a fashion and fine art photographer. During the Second World War, she became an acclaimed war correspondent and photojournalist. With the outbreak of the Second World War, Miller had separated from Bey and was living in Hampstead, London when the bombing of that city began. Ignoring pleas from friends and family that she should return to the US, Miller embarked on a new career in photojournalism as the official photographer for Vogue documenting the Blitz and was accredited to the U.S. Army as a war correspondent for Condé Nast Publications from 1944. She teamed up with David E. Scherman, a Life Magazine correspondent on many assignments. Miller travelled to France less than a month after D-Day and recorded the first use of napalm at the battle of St. Malo, the liberation of Paris, the battle for Alsace, and the horror of the Nazi concentration camps when the victims were liberated. A photograph by Scherman of Miller in the bathtub of Adolf Hitler's house in Munich is particularly well-known

  20. HMKF celebrated it's 40th anniversary at several meetings this summer. Trandum was last of these, which was held this weekend. I stayed only for the saturday, which turned out to be a great autumn day with sunny weather and good tempature. This morning I've been looking at the photos I took and listening to the downpour of rain outside. Really happy I didn't sleep in the tent, which I really planned to do. Since this was an anniversary meeting the HMKF put flowers at the monument remembering the executed at the Trandum prisoncamp during the war. At the single graves around the area it was put down flowers in red and yellow which is the colors of the HMKF. Because of the anniversary some rarer vehicles showed up as well. The Stoewer has turned out to be rather common with 3 new ones on the scene the later years. Even the Opel Blitz with two turning up besides a Schwimmwagen and a Kubewagen. Of allied rare vehicles we had m8, m20 and Chaffee. Also a Dodge Commandcar and an amphibious jeep. Just before I left a German Leopard arrived. Of the more commen allied vehicles there were new ones which I haven't seen before. I would say that about 150 vehicles participated in the meeting. I'll try not to post too many of the vehicles I've posted earlier. I will also split the thread in different parts. I hope you like it and consider visiting Norway for a meeting some time. Marty
