Hi Kevin. Excellent work as always. Do you have any idea why the extra plate rather than the wooden board and why the extra bolt?

When you fire the two pounder there is an auto eject for the spent case which literally flys out the back, you would need to protect the petrol tanks from a smouldering hot brass case, it’s essentially a gun deck, from the photos I have and lack of cut outs in the angle iron both sides indicate lift out steel plates were used, foldered at each end to provide rigidity. Extra bolt is to provide full complete coverage of the petrol tanks, luckily I had an original angle iron plate and good photos of the one at the Canadian war museum.

Hi, Does anyone have information on what insignia would have been on WW2 Canadian vehicles in service on the home front in Canada?. i.e. something like this formation sign and tactical/unit sign on the other fender?, Im looking to apply the marking to my tank hunter carrier.

The Canadian wet coast is non-original example as Kevin points out a brilliant fellow did excellent work on it and other unique Canadian military vehicles. Harry Moon may know a little more ?

From my own experience with Canadian museums, I wouldn't put much faith in anything they restored or have on display as being accurate, or authentic.
