a couple of close ups of the early 1939 training with the new MT kit!
interesting to see the carriers are armed with Vickers rather than Bren!
I won't embarrass myself with the softskins, but the 'carriers' are a Light Dragon MkIII towing a 2-Pdr anti-tank gun and a Carrier, Machine Gun No.1, Mk.1.
The Dragon is one of about 71 - Profile's Making Tracks
implies there were two prototypes and only 69 production vehicles. Making Tracks
has a similar view of D1802 (Reg. CMM 844) that shows a different rear layout with the ribbed side panel being the full length of the rear compartment - similar to the production version shown in Moving the Guns
. D1803 could be one of the prototypes?
These pictures must date between c1935-April 1937. In this period 2 RSF became an MG Bn. There's no mention of the 2-pdrs in the RSF history but I've read somewhere that the MG Bns were intended to have them at one point.
nb. Carrier, Machine Gun No.1, Mk.1 came into service during 1936.
