Any photos now posted on this thread are for the edification and enjoyment of the MLU'ers as I will not need them.

Many thanks.

Here's a photo of a Valentine Bridgelayer with a Ram Badger in the background, the comment with this photo is on the photo (demonstration by Bridgelayer).
As far as i know 5th. Can. Armd. Div. demonstrated their tools of the trade after the war ended, this photo was taken at the Ossenmarkt (Oxmarket) in Groningen.
The picture is scanned from a book called: 32 authentieke foto's van de bevrijding van Groningen (32 authentic photo's of the Groningen Liberation).
N.V. Foresta 1970 Groningen, no ISBN available.

Hope it's of any use, Cheers Ronald.
