Hi All

Out and about today, now that the undergrowth has started to abate, about 20 minutes from my house I noticed a familiar shape, an M26 in good shape and complete. The correct trailer is there but needs a sort out although is also complete and has agood set of boots. The motor is original Hall Scott and runs well. Started first time albeit five gallons of petrol.

Hope of interest. Tony G.

Am I missing something here? Have you just acquired this lovely beast? Richard

Do any one know about a M26 in British service.

at the end of the war there were a lot of german equipment and weapons left in Denmark, among this a lot of Arty on the west coast where the atlantic wall fortifications was.

Just after the war a 150mm Schwere Feldhaubitze 18, was pick up in Denmark by a M26, and transported to England.

there exist two pictures of it being moved, sadly not very big ones, but in one of them a crew member of the M26 can be seen wearing a beret and british stile uniform.

When Canada purchased the Centurions, they needed a good tank transporter and bought 4 M26A1 soft cabs and Martin Brothers F.8T. trailers around mid 1950's. The information that I have from different sources on the number go from 3-4-8 in total, last known photo that I have in use is 1968.....
