Default Ford Marmon Herrington LP3A question

I am finally back into doing models again after a house move and renovation. I started building an LP3A some years back with a lot of help from Jack Neville and have started finishing it. I intend on it towing an 18Lb QF gun and limber plus I will put a crew in the vehicle.

My question is that in the front cab area there is two rifles in a holder on the LHS for the driver and passenger. However I can find no information on whether the crew in the back had rifles and if so where were they stored?

Thanks in advance
Cliff

Default Holder

Hi Cliff

I found this pic of a 1939 model 3A , the C number is very low. C 443 ( It survived the war and was sold back to Ford Motor Comp.) Can't see any rifle holders in the pic.

Hi Mike, I found that I had asked this question in 2016 in another post. I have a lot of photos showing the rear set out and no sign of rifle holders so I guess my question really is - did the gunners in the back carry rifles as well?
