  1. If you search 'repair canvas tent' there are plenty of videos etc. to help you.
  2. Useful manuals? TM 9-876 - Technical Manual ORD 789 G683 Illustrated Parts Manual, Cushman Airborne Scooter
  3. Perhaps in an archive? Textron is the parent company for Cushman:- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cushman_(company) From your last post, I assume that you have seen these already:- https://www.facebook.com/groups/27177372861/?ref=share https://www.facebook.com/Motor-City-Cushman-Club-1391560594434276/ https://www.facebook.com/groups/380606499564861/?ref=share
  4. I, meant contact rather than just look at the contents of the site or post the request for dimensions in the Facebook group.
  5. You could try:- The Vickers MG Collection & Research Association (VMGCRA) https://www.facebook.com/groups/vickersmg/?ref=share https://vickersmg.blog/about/
  6. As you can see in the photo you need more than L x H x D. https://vickersmg.blog/in-use/accessories/ammunition-boxes-belts-and-loading-accessories/
  7. 103rd (Lancashire Artillery Volunteers) Regiment Royal Artillery is a current army unit. https://www.army.mod.uk/who-we-are/corps-regiments-and-units/royal-artillery/103-lancashire-artillery-volunteers-regiment-royal-artillery/ https://www.nwrfca.org.uk/tag/103-regiment-royal-artillery/ Even have a Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/103Regt/ Perhaps old photos can be found from one of the above.
  8. Not a specific regiment but does this help? https://ra39-45.co.uk/formations-and-markings/vehicle-markings
  9. You might find a trainer if you post your question on the Military Vehicle Trust. https://www.facebook.com/groups/2023327377915573/?ref=share
  10. Also discussed earlier:- https://hmvf.co.uk/topic/14968-scammell-explorer-rear-outer-hub-nuts/
  11. Total Driving, based in East Anglia. Prices 6 Hours (1 day) – £1112 (Suitable for LGV/PCV driver) 10 Hours (2 days) – £1812 (Suitable for non LGV/PCV driver) Prices include the practical test fee of £62. https://www.totaldriving.net/other/h-tracked-vehicle-training/ Looking at their prices, Tanks-Alot's 2 day £1,200+VAT course doesn't look so expensive. For help with a G licence, you could try a local steam club or rally. I'm not suggesting that you take a test on a steam roller but I have seen diesel rollers at shows.
  12. Even if the museum doesn't offer training they may know who does in the area. From the Tank Museum Bovington 28/08/2020 :- 'Three apprentices and two volunteers, all of whom work in the Museum Workshop, undertook their Tracked Vehicle H licence training to enable them to operate vehicles in the Museum’s historic collection.'
  13. Have you tried the Norfolk Tank Museum? http://norfolktankmuseum.co.uk/about-us/
  14. If nothing closer, a 2 day course including the test:- https://tanks-alot.co.uk/h-licence-training/ As you are tested by a DVLA tester, the DVLA should be able to tell you where H license training is done.
  15. I assume that you have seen this company:- http://www.armedforces.co.uk/companies/raq45f8078ec68bd#.YOhoPrfTWDY You could ask your local farm machinery or construction equipment seller who they use.
  16. Gas detection brassard also worn. Chemically impregnated light brown paper (resembling waxed paper) designed to be worn on the shoulder. After sliding the armband up the sleeve, a small loop was threaded through the epaulette on the wearer's jacket to secure it in place. These brassards would turn red from a chemical reaction if they were exposed to mustard gas. https://www.ima-usa.com/products/original-u-s-wwii-paratrooper-gas-detection-brassard-marked-dated-march-1944-by-jl-s
  17. Perhaps this forum will have the answer:- https://www.yesterdaystractors.com/cgi-bin/viewit.cgi?bd=oliver&th=61530 I assume that you have tried American and European suppliers.
  18. And I only sent you the link because of this statement - "R M Fowler can make bespoke chains made to exact customer requirements"
