T-16 CARRIER PHOTO

 

T-16 Carrier of the Lake Superior Regiment

T-16 CT96270 of the Canadian Lake Superior Regiment (4th Armoured Brigade, 4th Canadian Armoured Division) at a vehicle park in Holland just after the war. Note the improvised armaments, including the M2HB ground-mount .50 calibre machine gun complete with M3 aircraft barrel, 2" mortar on the smoke discharger mount, Bren mounting, and whatever it is the man in the back is posing behind. One can only assume that this carrier was used for more than just hauling supplies from one place to another, a testament perhaps to its durability.

If anyone has any further information on the origins of the picture or of the identities of its subjects, please let us know!
