  1. Is there anybody in the Macclesfield area who could collect something for me and either post it on to me or hold it until we can meet up? Thanks in advance, Adrian
  2. Davidson, H 21002960 Name and service number 33 rd A/B Light Regt RA 33rd Airborne Light Regiment Royal Artillery See Above link BAOR 23 British Army Of the Rhine 23

  4. I'm beginning to suspect it is ROF Radcliffe as well.
  5. Brass, unpainted. The book says they are to be kept bright.
  6. This is the page from the Canadian parts list.
  7. I came to the same conclusion. My 1942 gun is ROF N, which I assume is Nottingham as I know they made Bofors but it could also be Newport.
  8. I have some gun parts marked ROF RD. Obviously a Royal Ordnance Factory but I have not been able to id which. Nothing in the lists I have seen fit.
  9. Bear in mind the parts list was to enable the ordering of parts by the user so anything not available seperately didn't usually list the part number.
  10. This is from the British parts list.
  11. Canadian made parts usually were prefixed CTL so I would say Dagenham, though the box might have been made elsewhere as Dagenham was likely the assembly plant.
  12. FM Co is Ford Motor Company. TL1184A is a bren ammunition box for a Universal Carrier.
  13. However, they are not crocodiles, just standard Churchill VII's. The hull mount is for BESA mg.
  14. Hi Richard, yes, British wartime tanks were generally 12 volt, Centurion being the first to be 24 volt.
  15. Think Comet is 155-2 from memory.... Either way, Comet is 12 v, this is 24 v.
  16. That's the back..... Looks like a tank sheet and would be the ideal place to stow it ready to cover the vehicle. I suspect it is just for the engine or fighting compartment though as there seems to be more under a net on the nearside which is a more normal place to stow covers and nets.
  17. Yes it did, just in a semi gloss finish. Service brown is one of those colours that looks very different in gloss and matt.
  18. First pic leaves a bit to be desired as far as the caption goes!
  19. They are quite a common box, likely because they are quite robust and galvanized.
  20. It's for the 2 pdr pom pom anti aircraft gun.
  21. It's not German! This is one fitted to a US M42 in Vietnam.
