Another Gun Carrier Question.
Permalink   


According to D. Fletcher et al, Greg collaborated with Walter Wilson on the design of the Gun Carrier Mk I.

But, unless I've missed something, according to Landships they only collaborated on the Mk II.

Can anyone clarify?

I checked with David Fletcher's article on the Gun Carriers in "Wheels and Tracks No.58". He says the origins of the

Gun Carrier Mark I are obscure but the one name associated with it is Major Gregg - no mention of Wilson.

Perhaps later scholarship has added Wilson as a collaborator on the Mark I.

In the same article both Wilson and Gregg are associated with the Mark II Gun Carrier.

Regards,

Charlie

I just copied David Fletcher's spelling in the Wheel & Tracks article. I think, on reflection, this has come up before.

Regards,
