    Some very interesting finds, particularly the tank tracks.

    Like the links and the Canadian tank Rgt badge. Time hasn't been kind to the Brodie though.

    First pic is a jack for a G503 MB/GPW jeep.

    Some very nice finds there. I'd be a bit wary of the gas cylinder/fire extinguisher, if it's still pressurised and it ruptures it could cause a bit of damage to the surrounding area.

    Hi BlackCat1982. Thank you for your comment. You are right, not the best of conditions. But it means a lot to me as it is 'as found', in situ and along with all my other Sherman parts it adds to the full picture. Kind regards, Francis
