Water buckets--PROOF

Recommended Posts

This is what I use my buckets for:

 

hi Clive,

 

I note there is no partition between them, do you and Mrs Elliott, sit holding hands ? :lol:

 

Incidentally, they are not canvas buckets you use, are they?

 

Richard :wink:

Richard that's a ridiculous suggestion, hold hands! You obviously have a poor understanding of etiquette & of what is required of participants. You have to grip the vertical rails throughout, otherwise you fall over.

 

Ah I misunderstood I thought the fetish was buckets per se. I didn't grasp that it was canvas that was so special for you all. In which case, then you need this:

Now you see why it is hung out at the back of the vehicle.

Thanks for the correction there Clive, lets try and stay focused. No more of your cra*. on metal buckets. lol.

 

Buckets, canvas, water, for the use of. Vehicles, adornment. !

 

For those of you not knowing the history of this thread it was an attempt to prove that Canvas water buckets were carried strapped to a Jerry can.

 

Another well known contributor on another well known military vehicle forum stated that they weren't. EVER!

Right well you asked for it!

 

Definitive evidence, I quote from:

Complete Equipment Schedule

Army Code No.33606

Launcher Guided Missile Truck Mounted Armoured Malkara (FV1620) 1 Ton, 4x4, Humber.

 

Item No.195 J1-7240-99-943-8717

Buckets, Water, Canvas, Mk.5

 

So it looks if I should have to carry one of these damn things around as well!

Well it seems that Buckets, Water, Canvas, Mk.5 is still the latest version & used not just by UK but, Spain, Singapore, Malaysia & New Zealand.

 

Even the RAF have a part no for it 21E474. It conforms to the specifications required in Defence Standard 72-3 Buckets, General Purpose & to Britrish Standard 3358.

 

So the UK seems fairly commited to canvas buckets to this day :-).

Here is a WW1 Peerless truck in US Army service with a galvanised bucket balanced on the front. I see that the truck number (660) is painted in large numbers on the front.
