    The Loyd Carrier was one of the larger of the British tracked carriers. Its mechanical components were based on those of the 15 cwt 4x2 Fordson truck from which it took the engine, gearbox and transmission. All this was placed in a fully tracked lightly armoured steel bodied carrier and it was widely used by the infantry for towing 6 pdr anti-tank guns and carrying 4.2" mortars. [​IMG]
