Mystery Object No.79


Recommended Posts

 

Well done for being first man in.

 

Who used it? Officers

Probably not

 

What was it for? Sitting on

Nope

 

It looks like a padded or upholstered chair, upside down

Not a chair & that's rather hurtful thinking I would sneaky enough to turn an image upside down to throw you off the trail. Actually it is the right way up.

 

the part number, when you return VOAS Section K to the Library, I will look it up Richard

Ah well you got me there, I don't actually know the part number, just wondered if anyone did

Sits on an elephants back - to transport a rifleman - providing shade from the sun and snakes dropping in your lap. :coffee2:Markheliops

 

Looks a bit that way, tiger shoot & all that, but nope.

Judging by the rust pattern and box section uprights, I'd say 26"deep x 36"wide, sort of body depth and width.

Oh, and I have not got a clue as to its purpose in life, but that's a solid top all right.

 

 

Yes I think that's a pretty good judgement.

something to do with the ventilation of army showers or latrines as I don't see a direct use for Humber Pigs just at the moment .

 

Army latrines? Yes you are leaning against an open door here, but afraid it is some other application.

too small for a soldier to be in as... in a guard tower perhaps its a chimney for a portable water heating system of a vehicle perhaps?

 

I thought you were going to get warm, but nope
