Default 3" Mortar carrier storrage diagram

I found a couple of manuals recently, and by luck one included a large storage diagram for the 3" Mortar carrier.

Great Pics, Thanks for posting, anyone got any aiming posts and A mega phone available, the pictures still shed no light on any item that could be stowed on the rifle support above the battery.

I have a number of the megaphones (batteries not required) but they are a bit beat up. New old stock ones were available from surplus city Jeep parts at one time...not sure if they still have them.

Back in the day, I found a couple of these carriers up in Northern Ontario. Most/many of the brackets were still on them. However, the thought of trying to scare up that many 3" mortar stowage tubes scared me off from trying to put a mortar variant together, so I traded off the brackets to a fellow in Quebec.
