Default Merci

Hello Serge, thanks for sharing that picture plus info. Sadly, the thread ďIndian Pattern FATĒ went missing, maybe we should use this one to re-assemble all the info.

Default Indian Pattern FAT (second edition)

We used to have a long running thread on the Indian Pattern FAT here on MLU. For some unknown reason, it has disappeared...

Did anyone somehow save a copy or print-out of that thread?

Anyhow, in the meantime I may as well just start over again.

Dutch Forces in the Netherlands East Indies got many vehicles and equipment handed over from British-Indian army units in 1946.

The picture of the four trucks is of the 6th Indian Field Artillery before they (and the 145th FAR (Berkshire Yeomanry)) handed over their guns and trucks to the Dutch.

Hello Serge,

Thanks for your contribution to rebuilding the database with information on the Indian Pattern FAT. I didn't think about your earlier message, so I have now merged both threads to keep all info in one place.

For now I have attached a picture of a line up of the trucks of BATT B (Battery B) of the MARBRIG (Netherlands Marines Brigade) at Waroe, Indonesia, September 1946. The four trucks in the middle are Indian Pattern FATs.

Hanno

Via Wil Behrens, pictures are from her father Douwe Folkert Praamstra's estate. He served with the Dutch Army in Indonesia during the war of independence.
