What would towing cables issued to British armoured vehicles be made of? Were they made of braided metal wire, or a fibre? I have been puzzling over the supposed inclusion of a 2" mortar on the Archer. If I had to hazard a guess currently, it would be that the circular bracket and platform on the right front side here in my picture would have held the mortar if it had been issued - but maybe it never was, as I haven't seen it in any photos. (It would have been used to fire parachute flares.) Finally I am a little puzzled by the contents of a couple of the storage bins. (This is going off of an official stowage list that I received from the Tank Museum.) I suspect these lists were what was provided with each vehicle but not necessarily expected to be fit in the same bins after a crew received their vehicle. For instance, the right centre storage bin was supposed to contain 4 haversacks and 4 groundsheets, and the larger bin behind it had 4 packs each containing a greatcoat, 4 blankets, and the track adjusting tool. I'm not sure what a crewman would use a haversack for as opposed to a pack? And I also assume that these would not fit back into the bins once they were filled with personal items.
