Clive,

Bit of a slow starter is this one........not a lot of clues, but from looking at the lower picture on the second post, it look like some kind of kit stowage, there being a "wing" nut and retainer plate on that item.

Yes Richard they are all playing with tools at the moment!

 

Nope afraid not to do with stowage.

Something to do with a Shorland or Humber Pig ?

 

Nope, this modification is for another vehicle. Although as it happens it was also tried on a Pig.

Device for laying D10 behind advancing vehicles???

 

Neil welcome, I thought this was going to be a one-horse race with you know who winning! I'm afraid its not for laying anything.

 

If it helps, although this bracket assembly is a REME workshop design, the actual equipment it carried (which is not shown) was not British.

The equipment was a Carl Gustav & the mounting assembly was for a Saracen.

:( would never have guessed, Clive. At least you have put me out of my misery.

 

Not many times when no one has guessed it right, might be the first?

I thought someone was going to chip away at the non-British item. Then when we got to Sweden it would be a giveaway.

 

Then when we got to the armoured vehicle, someone would ask tracked or wheeled. Then knowing it had been fitted to Pigs then Saracen would have been the next step.

 

I was going to go back & put the uncensored drawings up & just leave it to see how long before someone with a photo zoom would take to notice the change, but it was too much of an effort!
