Another WW1 Holt Tractor.

Another 1st Corps Holt 15 ton Tractor, a HLBS 8 inch gun and a scratchbuilt towing limber . The crew on the tractor are a seated Woodbine gunner and a converted Perry Miniatures ACW figure carrying a "Flimsy" full of fuel. The gun has a disruptive camouflage paint scheme for hot and sandy conditions in Mespot. Film of Mesopotamia from the IWM shows a Holt like this with the divisional sign of the Indian 17th Division painted on the rear of the vehicle so the black cat rides on this model as well.
