Default Photos needed

I am working on a new book that will cover the acquisition and use, by the Canadian Army Overseas, of vehicles and weapons.
This will be heavily ilustrated and I have already located many new photos. However, I am still looking for additional photos of the items listed below. Unless otherwise stated the photos should be of Canadian vehicles or in use by the Canadian Army.
Although I would like never-before-published photos I can use Cdn Archives reference numbers and I will then research other pictures in the same file.
Let me know if you can help in this project. Thnx, Clive.

  • Priest Kangaroo: see Priest Kangaroo for some pics with references
  • Ram Kangaroo: see Ram Kangaroo for some pics with references
  • Ram Cougar/Badger: Don Dingwall used to have a webpage with pictures of the Ram Badger
  • Ram Bailey Beach Bridge: do you mean Ram BARV "Dolphin"? Barry Beldam used to have pictures of this on his website.

Default Where/when

Thanks Hanno. Do you have dates or place names for the Priest photos? When there is no Archives number I can usually find the original negative with that.
Since yesterday's post have located some fine images of Crocodile in support of Cdn troops, M10 3-inchSP, Buffalo and several of the flame thrower images that I sought.

Clive, as per the captions:

- http://web.inter.nl.net/users/spoels...acr/m7_01.html - Priest SP Guns of 33rd Field Artillery Regiment in Normandy, June 1944.

- http://web.inter.nl.net/users/spoels...acr/m7_02.html - The Public Archives of Canada (DND Army 36069), 'Priest' self-propelled gun of the 19th Field Regiment, R.C.A., Normandy, July 1944.

- http://web.inter.nl.net/users/spoels...acr/m7_04.html - A column of Priest Kangaroos on the move troops forward in Normandy during August 1944. Contact the Tank Museum to see if the can help with an Archives reference number.

- http://web.inter.nl.net/users/spoels...acr/m7_05.html - M7 Priest Kangaroos formed up with infantry prior to the 3rd Canadian Infantry Division attack on Boulogne, 17 September, 1944.

- http://web.inter.nl.net/users/spoels...acr/m7_07.html - no date mentioned in the caption, but Private Loren Nelson - The Battle of the Twente Canal captions this picture as follows "A jubilant crown meets the vehicles of 4 Division, which moved north through the village of Delden on the 4th of April 1945. Members of the Lincoln and Welland Regiment are already in town, many can be seen in the bottom right of this photo."

Hope this helps, am looking forward to the book!

Hanno

Great! Now let me have a go with this picture in the thread Carrier, 4.2 inch Mortar (T16): "A column of Canadian Bren Carriers and Sherman tanks in Terborg"


A quick search on ArchiviaNet yielded this reference number: PA-131664 - [Personnel of the Regiment de Maisonneuve and convoy of tanks and carriers moving through Terborg, Netherlands, 1 April 1945.].
Could be it, ne'st-ce pas?

Post Re: Photos needed

Clive;

The below picture is a Ram/Badger of the Badger Troop, H.Q., 5th Cdn Armd Bde, which was commanded by Lt. W.L. McCollum (C.A.C.) from 5 to 19 Apr 45. This picture was sent to me by his Granddaughter has part of some research I was doing for her. That's Lt. McCollum in the top hatch. It was taken in Putten (The Netherlands) on 18 Apr 45.

Cheers

Anyone notice the Ram ambulance in the background?

Hanno/Clive;

I believe this picture to be from the same sequence of photos taken of Kangaroos carrying troops of the 4th Inf Bde, 2nd Cdn Inf Div on 7 Aug 44. I've seen a clearer shot of this photo before and if I remember right, there is a 'chalked' '69' on the centre of the armoured plate which covers the opening for the 105mm How. mounting. This being said and if it is carrying troops of the 2nd Cdn Inf Div, the 'chalked' '69' would suggest that the troops being carried are those of the South Saskatchewan Regiment (6th Cdn Inf Bde, 2nd Cdn Inf Div) whose AoS No. was '69'. The photo in question:

According to the history (SEMPER PARATUS) of the Royal Hamilton Light Infantry (4th Cdn Inf Bde, 2nd Cdn Div) the Ram Kangaroos in this picture are carrying troops of the RHLI - moving up to Groningen on 13 Apr 45. Sorry, no NAC reference given for the photo itself. The picture in question:

This is great guys. I have found some excellent shots also but still need some of the more unusual items from my list. As always, a complimentary copy of the finished book for contributors.

Mark, you're correct. As stated on my site the picture in question has reference no. PA-130937 and is captioned "Personnel of the Royal Hamilton Light Infantry aboard 'Kangaroo' armoured carriers advancing to Groningen, Netherlands, 13 April 1945."
