Default Carrier in Italy

Back in August I had my Carrier at a show and a guy showed me an album of his grandad’s who was with a Carrier Platoon of the Buffs in Italy. The pictures were his Platoon doing maintenance and they were all Canadian made Mk1*s. Managed to take a picture of this one showing the tool kit.

Tom,

Thank you for sharing this image.

While I have seen plenty of images of the Walker hydraulic jack, this is the first image that I have seen which shows the Auto Specialties jack.

Colin

Very dark colour paint. My bet is freshly oiled for parade.

What catches my eye, is the big barrel of vino in the rear.

It’s next to the vehicle. You can see the headlight and the front plate of the driver’s compartment in front of the barrel, so it can‘t be actually on the vehicle.
