Ok, the cartridges were greased with cow and pig fat, which was contrary to the Hindu and Moslem sepoys respectively. Cows being sacred to Hindus and Pork being an anathema to Moslems.

Yes indeedy.It's the Pattern 53 Enfield rifled musket.The cartridge was refused at various establishments over India but particularly at Meerut where the Indian company troops were arrested and put in the local prison where they were later broken out and armed uprising began.
Your turn.
Jon.

Um.If you tap the picture it says Vickers D3e1.
Yes, that’s exactly why I warned about this in the opening post — it’s also how I solved Pete’s picture of the M2 amphibious bridge ferry (though the filename of that claimed it was an M3, it actually shows an M2).

Easy solution: don’t link to a photo on another site if it includes the thing’s name in its filename, but download the photo to your own computer, then change its filename to something meaningless (“Question.jpg” for example, or whatever else you like that doesn’t contain a clue), attach it to the message, and insert the full image into your post.

To be honest, I saw the photo, figured “That is probably an RAF maritime patrol aircraft — what were they called again? Nimrod, I think?” and then it was just a short Google image search later to confirm it was indeed a Nimrod.

So … this one then:

Hi Jakko...had to be French with those tracks....ARL 44...the sprocket had me completely stumped as it didn't match any of the early models and I have to admit that this tank was completely new to me....didn't know that the French were still using these tracks post war!!!... image.jpeg
Very interesting subject....might have to do a bit more digging on this one.....cheers. Marty

Exactly right, and thanks for posting the side view of the whole vehicle, saves me from digging up a photo like that :smiling3:

. They were used into the 1950s.

I’ve never seen this before either. Looks a little like a Tiger two turret on a Char B chassis.....
It resulted essentially from a vehicle designed during the last year or so of the Second World War, which turned out to be so similar in capabilities to the M4 medium tank that it was felt to be pointless, since those could be had in large numbers for next to nothing anyway, so it was redesigned with heavy armour and a big gun. Design-wise it pretty much is a Char B derivative with a German-style turret (but fairly crude) and gun, yes.
