You'll need to rewind it back to the start - I've no idea why it starts in the middle?

Outstanding! And since I'm your friend, I won't even ask which one you rode into battle!

SCHWING!

What is that little armored car around the 2 minute mark?

No idea at all - maybe a Daimler, but I wouldn't swear to it.

I was hiding with a nurse under one of the tarpaulin covers :-)

Just came from an actual car show in our town and then watched this with MiniGus 1. She says 'Thank you Sir Bawb.'

You're very welcome indeed :-)

An interesting story; My paternal grandfather lied about his age to get into the army in WW1, he was actually only 16. Anyway, he was badly wounded and returned home. After the war, one of the jobs he had was to drive a steam lorry and, according to my dad, in those days, it took 3 days to do the trip from Birmingham to Liverpool, a distance of only about 100 miles.

It starts at the beginning for me. AFA the still image you see with the 'START' arrow- YT often uses a placeholder still from somewhere in the body of the vid rather than the first frame.

Thanks - that was very interesting.  The Tank Museum in the UK has some of the armor, but I don't remember any steam lorries in the collection.

That is a very enlightening video. Thanks for sharing. O0
Regardless of how good a PC game may be it will always have its detractors and no matter how bad a PC game may be it will always have its fans.

Very interesting.  Posted it to my friend in heavy haul so he could see some "old" school heavy haul.

Nice to see an interesting tumble weed blow by.  ;)
