Tankette Tuesday #Two

My battered sole survivor from the Char B / Renault FT17 Matchbox 1:76 set. The Char B has long gone, although it still have the street setting and the poilu figures somewhere.

Is it a tankette? Is it a light tank?

This late 1970s Matchbox kit was recently rereleased by Revell and can be found in some online model shops.

Time Spent in Reconnaissance … makes you smile!

 

 

 

IMG_4454I came across this spirited photo today and it made me smile!

To me, it is the  Snoopy “Born to Dance” Peanuts cartoon of Carrier pictures.

Titled: “Universal Carrier of 52nd Reconnaissance Regiment moving at speed over rough ground, Scotland, 10 November 1942.”

This is an Official British Army Photograph aken by Lieutenant W.T. Lockeyear, War Office official photographer, 10 November 1942. Imperial War Museum image H25279.
