Franzl, I don't think it's a Guy; I'll agree with Alan on that one. The turret is missing (command vehicle conversion?), but the hull is enough of a hint in itself: The Guy - and the Humber MkI - had a simple armored box at the driver's position. The way the glacis continues to either side of the driver's visor indicates it's a Humber MkII.

For comparison purposes, Guy MkI, Humber MkI, Humber MkII (top to bottom):

Captured Carriers.
At least one AOP; note the Scherenfernrohr in the vehicle on the left. Strange mixture of black Panzer jackets and lighter-coloured trousers and side caps; also the middle man is wearing an odd-looking beret.

Edit: better view of the left Carrier in TadPortly's post from almost a Year ago at http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic. ... A#p1233449

These Bren Gun Carriers are for carrying guns, right?

Hello chaps,

Fell across this forum looking for something - I forget what now, I've spent the last couple of evenings wading through this and the vehicle identifications threads. Can't believe what a lot of interesting stuff there is here. There's a couple of things I picked up on in this thread, hope you don't mind me butting in - though since I can't believe how much you guys know about some really obscure vehicles, excuse me if I'm teaching you to suck eggs...
Bill Murray wrote: ...I can never tell the Fords from the Chevs unless I see the front grille but it is one or the other...
Cheers
Bill
Bill, I was told the grille identification isn't reliable, and certainly I've seen Chevs with 'Ford' grilles on. Supposedly a good way is the radiator guard mount - split front and rear of the bumper for Chevrolets, mounted just on the rear for Fords, though I don't see why that wouldn't change if the (fairly vulnerable) bumper was changed; also round intakes either side of the grille on No. 11 cabs for Chevs, and split axles for Fords vs. banjo axles for Chevs, though supposedly that's not completely reliable either...

There seem to be a lot of these captured R100 photos here, are they all Dunkirk or North Africa?

Here are some Bedfords ...the last one was captioned Bedford by the seller (I'm not sure if he was right)

Image
Long bonnet Bedford so 30 cwt K type or 2/3 ton M type; though is the cab a local or coachbuilt one? If not, given that '30s style screen could it be a very late W type?

Another Bedford OYC truck, getting a body added to the rear...

OW rather than OY, as civvy type wheels?

I think this is the early style crane, which would make this the Pioneer SV/1S - rare vehicle, I think there were only 40 or 50 of them built before they went over to the SV/2S as in Sander's post of 7 July '05:

Hi Sean N,

sorry that I answer to Your question so late.
To the Scammel pics: I looked all over the pics and I think all R 100 are from Dunkirk with the one exception, the one with the crane You posted above.

To the Bedford getting a body. I´m still thinking like Steve that it is the type OY for three tons. As far as I know the type OM is heavier than the OY, had another flatbed and the payload was five tons. I haven´t seen a pic of such a truck in German use, yet. The question is: Did the British forces use OM trucks in 1940?

To the other points I cannot say anything, sorry.

So that´s all for today.

Regards

Bert

Hello Bert,

My turn to apologise for the delay replying - I don't seem to have been able to get on the forum until now, I just get the 'Information' page.

I was interested in the R100s - the artillery tractor - as there seemed to be a lot of different ones; I was surprised that many were captured. They're quite an impressive vehicle though, the sort of thing that's going to get photos taken of it!

The OW / OY I don't know. I think the OW was introduced in 1941. Somehow it looked a bit big for an OY, as well. I'm not sure you can tell from the flatbed type. Time was I'd have known the difference straight away!

I think the only other 'question' was the M type Bedford, though it was more chatting than a question.
