Surveying the battlefield from their Dingo.

 

British paratroopers have a ride around the proposed battlefield at Lytham St Annes, together with a Russian partisan in the gunner's seat.

 

Later on the soldiers of the 6th Airbourne advanced behind the Daimler Dingo into battle with the commanding officer giving some vociferous encouragement to his men.

I'm sitting here staring at this, Les. Besides your immaculate processing, it really intrigues me...not that I'm a war buff, mind you. There are so many gadgets and hinges and ropes and cubby holes....
Les Auld: Everything you need to survive Ginnie, thanks for the comment.

"GET YOU 'AIR CUT, YOU 'ORRIBLE OIK" is what he's probably shouting at someone who looks like a girl wink Is that Prince Charles sat next to her?
