British "Fury" name ideas.

Feel free to discuss anything and everything to do with tanking here!

Hello folks.

I've been collecting up parts to make a British version of the "Fury" four tank squad. And I've come up with a few names for each tank, but they don't "feel" quite right. Obviously I'm thinking of typically British names, but I just can't think of one to replace the name Fury on the firefly, jolly miffed doesn't quite hit the spot, although. . . .

Rosy Lee however is one I'm considering for one of the other tanks.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Oh, and this is what I recently received from Nick Aguilera. Including 3 short 75mm barrels, 2 low bustle turrets with a few small hatches and British fire extinguishers.

I was thinking of something along the same lines as yourself Mick ' slightly miffed ' :D as you know, the Brits don't like to make a fuss, apparently ;) .... :thumbup:

Cheers, Lee.

Well, one name has been accounted for. I was looking up popular British women's names for that time, given to babies during the 1910's and early 20's, then saw my mum's name close to the top.
She was born in 1914, and named Beatrice.

One down, three to go.

Edit, may go with "For Dunkirk" or "For" something on a similar theme.

I would look at pin up actress of that time,think like one of the crew.you have your poster/your post card inside your tank.
With their name on the tank.loved by all.
But I do like the name Beatrice.

'Ow bowt ...'FOR F*cks Sake', a declaration of the futility of war. Or if female name, 'Doris' or 'Mavis', Both popular in them there days. My personal choice would be Pusskins, after my mother's dog.

That's funny probably suit me more.
If you name the tank Beatrice its more personal means more to you.
OK I'm into boats,if I bought a boat of a guy with his wife's name painted on the back,I wouldn't change it.its a personal thing to him.
And once named that's it.
I may buy Beatrice of you one day.

'Iron Brew' (not to be confused with 'Irn Bru')- partly because of the Sherman's reputation for 'brewing up'; Tommy Atkin's reputation for enjoying a brew; and finally-an evil iron brew awaiting the Panzers...
