Very good, Ricky.
I trust that it has a side on view, on the rear of the tee-shirt.
Now where can I buy one?.........
Just send me £3,000... :grin:
I might try and find out who actually owns those photos, and see if i can get permission to use them on T-shirts (not for profit). It would be fun to have one
There is actually some colour footage of that monstrosity in the first episode of "Colour of War the ANZACs", sadly there is none of the Sentinel which would have shown how a tank is supposed to be built :lol:
You never know there may actually be some colour stills somewhere as well. You could try contacting Jeffrey Plowman who has written a few books on NZ armour, see here.
I still can't decide if that's roofing iron (which would be too thin to be useful and in the photos it looks too sharp and the pitch is wrong), or angle iron (which looks right but there are too few bolts/rivets to hold it on) on the sides of it.
Sounds like a bargain. (Don't forget that I am a Bob Semple fan).
Where do I send it?
I say again, where do I send the £3,000.
To my Swiss bank account, of course... :wink:
Thanks for the info on the Bob Semple...never heard of that one...With a battalion of those I could take the cookies from any girl scout troop around... :lol:
Hey, I like this guy, talk about an optimist... :grin:
My money is on the girl scouts.
Churchill flame-thrower tank (Crocodile? Or am I thinking of something else? Saw 2 at the Canadian War Museum)
Actually a very effective tank in urban situations - good armour, good over rubble, very nasty flame-thrower and, unlike some other flame-thrower tanks, a machine gun too - apparently scared the cr#p out of the Germans.
One would assume a flame thrower would be good in an urban environment.....what about the rest of the time or when the town comes under artillery fire?
I'm not so sure.
Cdat might be right you know. After all, it's not easy to defend your cookies, when you are rolling around on the ground laughing your little girl guides asses off, at your first sight of a Bob Semple Battalion!
The girl scouts' air force would be safe from the Sgt York too.
(now there's an image to conjour with).
The SdKfz 250 is a good candidate. It was expensive, had limited space compared to the larger SdKfz 251 which could do anything the SdKfz 250 could do, drew resources away from an allready strained war economy and was simply a luxury you wouldn't think Germany could afford.
I am laughing so hard myself at the thought of it...course the battalion would need a song and guidon...I am sure we have some musicians here, how about a Bob Semple song?
Can anyone help me identify the commander in this rare Bob Semple shot ?
