Default Universal carrier, Mark I.

© IWM (D 12427) Women war workers from J & F Pool Ltd, a small West Country arms factory, travel to a test range in a Universal carrier, Mark I. They have been rewarded by the Ministry of Supply for producing 1 million mortar bombs with a trip to see some of their handiwork in action.



What aout the "rose"on the front fender...which unit does it represent ????

Remember going to Duxford with my father many years ago and there was a Bren Gun Carrier (same-similar to this?) in one of the displays...he began explaining all about it as its one of the vehicles he drove during ww11, trouble is, he lit a roll up! ( chain smoker, issued cigarettes during the war= hooked) and got told to put it out by a security guard, from then on wherever we went in that hanger / building, the guard (rightly) followed us!
embarrassed or what!
