    Tanks

    Hi, does someone know the primary forum(s) in the UK where tank lovers do attend. I'm looking to establish new connections, however, it seems that I'm still lacking proper virtual places on the web where such people are meeting up.. If someone could share any thoughts - would be very helpful.
  4. As stated, looking for a CH-108 spare parts chest for the RC-58 facsimile set, WWII vintage US radio equipment. If you don't have one but know of one (for sale or not), please let me know. Alternative to buying is taking pics/measurements to reproduce one. Thanks all. -Tom

    M10 restoration

    As a follow on to the 'Sherman spotted on the A12' thread where I mentioned an M10 going the other way, this thread is about said M10 as the owner has asked me to post some pics and info. I first heard about the M10 many years ago but only knew it was in a childrens playground, somewhere in Yorkshire. I did not follow it up at the time as I had other things to think about... It cropped up in conversation again at Stoneleigh 2001 and I managed to get a location. Strangely enough, I was asked at the same show if I wanted to buy a 6046 Detroit twinset, the correct engine for the M10. I decided it must be fate so said yes! I eventually tracked down the owners, it was in a private trading estate, but they were not willing to sell it, nor the Windsor carrier it sat next to. I asked again every few months or so always to be told ''no thanks''. Out of the blue around October, I was asked if I was still interested as they had decided to sell after all. I put in an offer for the pair which was accepted and I became the proud owner of one tired M10 and a slightly more tired Windsor carrier!

    WWII LVT ride

    Today I had a chance to ride in a friends LVT
  7. Hi Forum and greetings from Doha, Qatar. Been living and working in the Construction Industry here in Doha for the past 5.5 years and still enjoying it - pretty much. I am an owner and researcher of the VW Type 82 Kübelwagen which was built in January 1945. Restoration is a slow process as I am here in Qatar and the vehicle is in France. However I do enjoy the jaunts back to Europe to do a bit of work on it and go to the rally's and swap meets to purchase the remaining missing items that are still required. There's a large amount of stuff here in the forum so If you do not mind I'll start browsing and see what there is available for my particular vehicle. Cheers Ron
  8. Hello all! I have this siren (actually it is in the mail to me at the moment from a friend) below. I don't really need help with an actual ID, as it has a tag. The siren is a Secomak "Syren" VS1. It is somewhat close in appearance to the GP1, and has a similar sound as well. Secomak's, as far as I know, were factory and building mount warning sirens, but what throws me on this one is the 6volt, which is why I am assuming vehicle. No one I have asked has been able to help me or has even seen one that looks like this, but we American's aren't too familiar with the Secomak's generally. Also, if it means anything, this siren was found in Australia.

  10. The third day of Market Garden starts well, after the 101st Airbornes captured Eindhoven yesterday and XXXcorps linked up with them they were forced to halt and repair the Son bridge. By now the first tanks have crossed the repaired bridge and are well on their way to Grave to link up with the 82nd Airborne. The 101st Airborne tried to take the town of Best (to the west of Son) and is sucked into a battled that started went from a company sized attack to a regiment size attack. The outcome is still in doubt although the bridge (initial objective) has been blown by the Germans yesterday at noon. In Nijmegen there is little good news, the road and rail bridges are still in german hands after costly attacks by the brave men from the 82nd Airborne. Also the germans had to be forced of the dropzones where the second lift arrived yesterday, taking valuable reserves from the attack on the bridge. The hope is that with the combined power of the 82nd Airborne and XXXcorps the bridges will soon be in Allied hands. In Arnhem it gets only worse. Yesterday the second lift arrived hours late which gave them very few hours to actually do anything except land and regroup and thus giving the Germans even more time to bring in reinforcements. Also part of the second lift had to land in a raging battle causing extra casualties. The 1st and 3rd para battalion tried to get to the Arnhem bridge and reinforce the 2nd para battalion but failed to get through the german defence lines between Arnhem and Oosterbeek. At the bridge the 2nd para destroyed an SS reconissance group that tried to storm over the bridge. This was a great success but the paras spent a lot of ammunition which cannot be replaced. This morning at 04:30h the last desperate attempt by what remained of 1st and 3rd para, reinforced by the 11th Para and the South Staffords started towards the bridge. After initial succeses, the tide has turned and the attack has stalled. Currently it's unclear if they will be able to break through. Further to the north west the 4th parachute brigade tries to take the supply dropzones but has met stiff resistance.
