    2 Irish Guards, 20 April 1945:
    With the two Battalions based on SITTENSEN we pushed out a troop with a section of carriers under Duncan LAMPARD MC, to take the village of ELSDORF, a mile or so further down the autobahn. This force completed its task in record time despite a bridge collapsing behind them and mines in all the lanes. We found a very easy way of detecting mines after the first encounter: A Pole was sent on ahead into the villages we were to pass through, with the threat that unless the civilians disclosed to us where the mines had been laid, we would brew up every village in which we found mines. The effect was just as we expected - after seeing the first village in flames the Krauts soon gave us all the information we required and we ran onto no more mines. By midday Duncan’s small force was in ELSDORF without any opposition, although the recce patrol with him took a few prisoners. The rest of No. 1 Squadron was now ordered up. As soon as it arrived, the Squadron consolidated and set about getting lunch. The Commanding Officer, Mick O’COCK and several other officers were having lunch on the outskirts of the village when to their surprise three big lorries full of Germans suddenly bowled down the road leading into the village. Lunch was soon forgotten, everyone who own any sort of automatic gun made a dive for it, and at a range of three to four hundred yards one could hardly miss. As soon as the first bursts of fire died down the tanks advanced and swept down on the transport. We got a good bag - about sixty prisoners, a few dead and eight trucks of various kinds (the tanks rushing on had discovered five more just round the corner). Bn HQ had enjoyed their day. The Commanding Officer now led his party off to clear the Autobahn between SITTENSEN and ELSDORF. This was done without any trouble and we were then able to use it. It is a lovely road - a motorists dream. Mick O’COCK sent one of his troops NORTH to the village of WISTEDT after tea but this had to be called back as evening came on as it was stretching the Squadron too far. The night was fairly quiet.

    Wonderful stuff - that's my early night scuppered!

    First observation - 24th picture which is 22 Adv. Base Workshops Brussels - Left hand column, third from front - is that a Churchill Ark?

    On my phone, Tom, so can't easily check the picture or give you good links, but If you Google 'Cromwell rubber armour turret' or similar you should find some pics/info.
    There was a field mod where strips of rubber were added with zimmerit-esque intentions. (IIRC MADE from old conveyor belts, but that means trusting my memory...)

    Adam,

    Thanks for that Information

    The strips do look like wavey rubber, as there are a few air pockets apparent underneath the coating.

    Regards
    Tom

    These are great pics.
    My father was a driver a RAOC/REME recovery section for most of the war so to see how they did it is great.

    I do not have such luck with the IMW as every pic I really want to see is BLANK.
    :(

    Great pictures, my Dad was a driver with the RASC so not involved with tanks,recovery, repair etc but these are very interesting. Cheers Brian

    I really like this one you posted. It never occured to me tha they had a way to remove the panel over the driver and gunner so that they could service that beast of a transaxel. I wonder how they liked doing that in winter?

    I have read it was one of Panther's leading technical issues. Never quite the strongest part of the machine needing such rearranging to work on.

    Transmission problem on Sherman?
    Pop a new one on - we've got loads:

    As you can see the extensive welded armour at the from the only place available to work on the Transmission was to take off the upper deck Piece which incorporated both Driver and Radio Gunner hatches.

    A Major Job and not undertaken lightly. I have no idea of the time taken to Exchange, but presume even under ideal Workshop conditions will take several hours.
