    Singe - are you sure about this info. I saw film shots of the same scene in several documentaries on Operation Veritable and assume this picture was taken near Goch. There are no leaves on the trees, which would have been the case in October, wouldn't it?

    Am i sure....NO!

    Having looked at the photo's and not just relied upon my memory, I see that they are in fact two different cars. You can see why I thought they were the same because of the similarities.

    However I have no other photo's of cars equipped with the petrol cans on the back armour so this looks to be a modification only used by the DY and could confirm the regiment

    If you can match the location with the church steeple that would be great!

    will add the photo to my collection and give you a credit for finding it, I note with interest it does not appear in the actual film clip...strange?


    thanks for the correction will change the badge in at the next update
