Well, SOG, when only the first photo was slowly downloading, I was impressed by the realistic weathering of the tracks. :haha: In the last photo, there is something kind of...well...weird about the figure to the left of the Bren Carrier. :O

Yes, I spotted that as well :haha:
Maybe he overly liked being photographed. . . .
Or it had something to do with the gas mask. . . .
Second picture, top right.

Poor placement etc of a museum mannequin.

I discovered the other day that the Bren Gun Carrier while it was designed in Britain the vast majority of them were built in the USA.

"I discovered the other day that the Bren Gun Carrier while it was designed in Britain the vast majority of them were built in the USA." I didn't know that! Where were they built? By whom?

Sorry Doc and anyone else following this thread, While it is true that the universal carrier was produced in North America it was limited to 5,000 in Canada and 20,000 in the USA.
The majority were made by many different manufacturors in the UK as well many in other parts of the World.
(Truly UNIVERSAL!).

The universal carrier tearing around the field at the Ontario Regiment Museum was built by Ford of Windsor, Canada IROC. Crazy little things...that I would like in my garage!
