    Hi Dave,

    Your B167 and the 2 inch mortar display look great. Did you create this yourself? I would like to have a similar display.

    I have about 12 of the B167's and about the same number of the bigger B166's and am hoping to get dummy PIAT rounds for those
    I also have 15 of the wooden WAECO boxes which I think took 6 x 36 grenades.

    I do a bit of living history using my Fordson WOT2 as a re-supply unit.

    Regards
    Barrie

    Hi Dave ,
    Many thanks for your reply, if you do go ahead with the carrier please let me know. By then I should have worked out how to operate this site.
    Regards
    Barrie
