    Hi folks,

    Does anyone have any evidence of, pictures of or references to look at for the Phantom Patrols vehicles in use in North Africa and Italy.

    My research states Humber Light Recce Cars MkIII with the turrets removed, but I'm hoping for some pictorial evidence if possible, as it states they had a Bren with it, which I would assume would be in the turret.

    Not specifically about Phantom but the Humber LRC MkIII was often used with the turret removed. A Bren gun was mounted in the front near side where officially a Boyes AT gun should be. Later in the war neither the turret nor the Boyes were of much use.

    Mike. Must have missed the reply, here we are 8 months later, I can but apologise!!

    Thanks for the reply, would you be aware of anywhere that would likely have any pictorial evidence of this?
