Isle of White Rifles 2.

Here are the last five figures to complete the 1/8 Hampshire Regiment (Isle of Wight Rifles) (TF), 163 Bde., Palestine, 1917. There are a couple of Woodbine Design and three Footsore Miniatures figures in this group. All have been given a khaki drill paint scheme to go with the sinister looking smoke hoods.


 Here is an image of the whole unit of ten.





Next in this project, 1/4 Norfolk Regiment (TF).

Another Holt and a big tracked trailer

I had a First Corps Holt tractor in the "might be useful" pile. The same pile also had the two steering mechanisms from the 1/56 JTFM Mark I tanks pictured earlier. They were surplus to requirements. I built the Holt, found a couple of likely lads from the lead pile and cut a couple of bits off the steering gear and presto... a towing limber for a big gun.
Then I remembered this image:

And this from the IWM online photographic collection:

It was what they were pulling that interested me. Big tracked trailers. So I had a go.
