Refernce: AWM photos, Book: Australian Military Equipment Profiles: Field Artillery 1939-1945, and photos.

Tally: 18

The photo is of the No.9 tractor which didn't have external ammo lockers.

I would be interested in one for each Gun i get, so min of 4.

My dad owned one. It was really loud and uncomfortable and you bounced around in it uncontrollably (particularly as a six year old - what's a seatbelt?)

Dad kept a huntsman spider going in the cabin for a couple of years. I had to feed the thing with flies. It liked the passenger side - where I was. Must have been the cuisine.

Put me down for two (2) to start. I'll get more later.
