    Here are the latest two pick-ups, looking back through the thread I think they are A13 webbed and a variant of the A9 previously shown. Perhaps mr. 8men might be able to shed a bit more light on them.

    Yes, the larger links are Churchill. Looks like there's some Cromwell links chucked in there as well.
