Hi 12thEngr,  thanks for the fascinating shot of your fathers unit during WWII, love all the information in the photo, especially the closed cab GMC 353 trucks, I owned one of these back in the 1980's and for me it's the classic wartime GMC. Never liked the later war open cab GMC's with canvas roof they don't have the aesthetic look of the closed cab versions.

Hi everyone,

 

This is a M3A3 light tank standing outside the Le Grand Bunker museum in Ouistreham, Normandy. As far as I know this variant was not used by US troops in Europe but Commonwealth, French and Polish troops made extensive use of these vehicles.

Hi 12thengr,  thanks for the additional photo, lovely trucks, would there be any shots of the field kitchen GMC's amongst your fathers photos, I have a friend with a fully fitted-out kitchen unit, all items contained in the rear are genuine US wartime pieces, including the stoves, utensils, post and pans . . . . . . . .

 

my truck back in 1984

 

regards lewis.

I dont think this tank has been posted yet. My brother was in Euclid Ohio and sent these photos of an M103 heavy tank guarding the local library. He took some nice and clear photos but unfortunately the USMF image resizer distorts them some. Not a good idea to have overdue books at this library!
