  7. Hello I think that STORMIN is right. On WWII american truck there is no specific part mounted only for to have a marking (a star as showed on the previous pic). So I think that the purpose of these steel plates was to protect the mudguard when the truck was pushing an other truck or trees. I had soon asked to some owner of WARD LA FRANCE but nobody was able to give me an answer. regards Serge
  8. Hello On each side of the bumper of a WARD LA FRANCE M1A1, there is a little steel plate. These late are welded on the front bumper and I would like to know their purpose. Regards Serge
  9. Hello I send the pic of an other MACK LMSW used by polish army during WWII. What is funny is the cab which seems to be non usual. The cab seems to be a cab of a MACK RUXTALL but I am not sure. I found the pic on INTERNET and there was no comment. Regards Serge
  10. Hello I post two pics of a MACK LMSW used by british army. I think that the frame is the same than the frame MACK LMSW used by canadian army but the body is different. This body is not the same than the body of DIAMONT T980 or T981. I note that this truck belongs to an old man and it will be a good thing to save the truck before it will be too late. Regards Serge
  11. Hello I am glad to add an other pic of the SCAMMELL PIONEER SV to the gallery. This wrecker is owned by our club. (ex MVCG PARIS). I think it's the only SCAMMELL existing in FRANCE, it was bought in the 90' in the same state. Regards Serge
  12. Hello My « PSEUDO » will be Serge and I was born in NORTH of AFRICA 63 years ago and now I live near PARIS in FRANCE. My first connexion with world war two military vehicle occurs when I was 5 years old. My father was loocking to buy a truck and he led me in a French military camp where a lot of truck should be released. I remember that there was mainly CANADIAN TRUCKS (CHEVROLET and FORD CMP, DODGE T110 and also French lorries as FORD F798, CITROEN P45) “In fine” my father bought a DODGE T110 D60 L5 with a steel body and with light stone paint. Maybe was it a relic of the eight army of MONTGOMERY. Some 40 years later I found an other DODGE T110 in south of FRANCE. During my visit of the scrap yard I discovered two FORD CANADA F60L. I bought one of them and the DODGE T110. After restoring the DODGE, I used it for the main meeting in FRANCE (LE PAS DE CALAIS LIBERE) where every year we meet british military vehicle collector. I am an daily reader of the MAPPLE LEAF FORUM and some time I post a reply to some threat. As you asked me, I join pics of my two canadian lorries. I own also a DODGE WC51 late model (composite body) and a JEEP M38A1C (C because it was used with 106 mm gun). I am an "active member" since near 25 years of MVCG PARIS ILE DE FRANCE. Regards Serge
  13. Hello The two PACIFIC arrived at RETROMOBILE loaded on trailer and with single wheels at the rear. Nevertheless, due to the extra dimension (without the tadem) a special paper should be asked for the travel. With the tadem (double rear wheels) the overflowing is toolarge. I can display a pic with the tandem mounted regards Serge
  14. Hello I am a new user of this forum. I send you two pics of the PACIFIC M26 before sending at RETROMOBILE in PARIS last week : A hub and the truck lifted. One of them was in the convoi in SEPTEMBER at meeting "LE PAS DE CALAIS LIBERE". Our club owns a trailer but this one is toolarge and stay at the garage. Regards Serge
