    Yes they were used & modified to become Mk 4, I was highlighting the use of Mk 2 after reading your profile message to canuck about the film you saw.

    Another c.36 on a rhomboid.
    (The last WW1 job was c.36 too}.
    Seems a lot of wasted space. Definitely scope to beat that 50+ Centurion on one.

    I recently saw this one (below), on Karl’s FB page at: The Sherwood Rangers Yeomanry 1939-1945

    How many Dutch children can you fit on a Sherman?
    Be my guest to count all these kids posing atop this C Squadron Sherwood Rangers Sherman in the Dutch town of Borne, Oude Almeloseweg, to be presise.
    The town was liberated by C Squadron on April 3 1945.
    They would spend 6 days in the town resting and refitting before moving on to the next operation.

    I think we may have a winner in the junior category there...

    A Jagdtiger is cheating.
    Like a sodding carnival float.

    Can I request a sub-category of how many people can you fit on a Panther knocked out by a PIAT?

    Overloon.

    Despite all the starvation & missing bicycles, it's hard to deny school trips must have been a lot more interesting.

    Kids around Overloon had plenty of choice on what to clamber all over...

    Indeed. Enough to stock a large museum.

    What tank is underneath all those children? It looks like a Panzer IV but the barrel looks awfully large.

    A Sturmpanzer IV aka Brummbär

    This may be the current leader for style, arrangement, and even a relatively uncommon vehicle.
    It's right up there for numbers too, though obviously has to go into the Juniors category.

    I also find myself wanting that MP's sunglasses.
