Name of Gun Carrier Designer.

There is considerable evidence that Major Gregg was actually Major John Ronald Greg. Glanfield lists him as Greg, but I've double-checked.

Sources include London Gazette and the 1918 New Year's Honours List.

Yes, should be J. R. Greg, who was the son of Albert Greg, a past Chairman of the Lancaster Railway Carriage and Wagon Company, which was one of the companies that merged to form Metro in 1902.

Not sure who's calling him Gregg - John Glanfield doesn't.

David Fletcher does in his "Wheels and Tracks" article on the Gun Carrier.

As I say, Glanfield says "Greg". You'll never believe this, but Wikipedia says "Gregg"! Well,  it did until recently.

B.T. White (1974) has "Gregg". So does Fletcher in The British Tanks 1915 - 19, so does Tank Encyclopaedia, and so do all the sites that have cribbed the original Wikipedia article, in many languages. At the moment, so does Landships II.
