Not really my thing, I just have a fascination with the minutia of the provisioning of the soldier. I guess I like food. Go ahead, take my place.

Thanks Sallyg. Military gastronomy is a disputed subject matter anyway.
Now, what are these guns ?

Although this photo appears to have been taken during the Korean War, it shows a M39 AUV. :wink:

"The M39 Armored Utility Vehicle (AUV) was designed during World War II and saw limited service in that conflict as well as in the Korean War."

From my pic source: http://www.olive-drab.com/idphoto/id_photos_m39auv.php

Over to Greece!

I vaguely remember something about a Sherman Viper I think it was called.
Long ago and armour is not my thing but I think it was an up armoured and maybe up gunned vehicle maybe for bunker busting?

Could this be an early experimental flame thrower version? I don't recall Sherman FTs being used in the ETO, but they were in the Pacific.
