Hi gents,


The PU is booked in for canvas.......Hooray......a roof at last..... but i was wondering if any of you guys would know the dimentions for the canvas style sand mats used during ww2. They rolled up for storage and appear to have had some sort of sticks or bars stiched into pockets. I dont have the film any more but i seem to recall they were used in " ice cold in alex" to extract said nasty chap from the salt marsh in the depression.


Any details as to length and breadth would be appreciated.


If i've posted this in the wrong part of the forum i appologise now and shall throw myself on the mercy of the Moderators :cry:


I will post pics when canvas is done.

I was also lookng for some and was told one of the canvas makers has made them for the Desrrt Raider Group (Allied Canvas???)


Still on my shopping list to get some but not got round to it yet so if you find them post here to let us know and I will do likewise.
