I need some help identifying this armored car. The sign does not appear to match the vehicle?

Nice shots, Neil. I really really hope that you will go to the Saumur Tank Museum soon, to take more wonderful photos.
I took some of your photos from the Bovington tank museum, and inserted it in my PDF files (look at the "Tiger and Panther survivors lists" topic).

Cheers from France,

Pierre-Olivier

Unfortunately, I dont know when I will get to Saumur again - although I was pleased to find that they had brought a Char B1 bis to Eurosatory last week. Pictures to follow in another thread...

Sorry Neill the thread takes so long to download from image-treacle-bucket that I have had to turn the images off when I view it... one of the consequences of living in this part of the world I suspect.

Cool

A Mk A Whippet known as "Caesar" - one of two in the world, the other is at the Ordnance Museum at APG. A Birtish Army Lieutenant won a VC posthumously in this tank.

They also have a Whippet in the Belgian Museum of Armour in Brussels (and a Mk IV IIRC).

Hi Neil! Hi Folks!

Thanks for sharing your photos! Almost makes up for not go there myself.

As for your questions:

1. The armored car, no clue yet.

2. The possible Sherman mine rollers, again no clue yet.

3. The model. Looks a bit like a possible VERY early Chieftain idea.

Sgt, Scouts Out! Smile

How about you just let it load in a seperate window while you're doing whatever else? I hate to leave you out of this... I may have to look into the photobucket album options...
