    Hello Ron and everyone,

    Hope you are well and had a good Christmas.

    I was photographing some Mediterranean area "AFV Technical Reports" at the Canadian archives and came across these pictures of a Stuart recce with a hood, which I had never seen before. The discussion of the permabulator hood makes me think this is surely the right place to post them. I'll attach them in a following post.

    Ron, did your Stuart have a gun shield or not? Do these pictures spur any recollections? Was yours simply painted green?

    Regards,
    Chris

    P.S. Is there any way to tag this post so that Ron will be sure to see it?



    This text about the vehicle reads as follows, from "Mediterranean Area AFV Technical Report 19", dated 2 Feb 1944.

    Possibly because I am on a train, I am having trouble uploading the pictures to an album on the forum, but I was able to upload them to imgur, so here those are:

    There are also some photos of the interior arrangement in the turret, but I think this is enough photos to throw in the thread at one time.
