Lions' Sled by Donkeys?
Permalink Closed


Has anyone got anything to say about this? Don't know if it was armoured, but the passengers look very important.

I wonder if its a Rusian sledge, captured by the Germans and being inpected by the top brass. The Soviets certainly produced a number of vehicles of a similar pattern in the inter war years and WW2
The 3 bladed prop is unusual as most (but not all) WW1 period props were either two or four bladed.

Interesting. It does look like the sort of thing the Russians would get up to, but the eagle on the badge appears Prussian rather than Russian - only one head if you have a good look. Number 3 seems to be Hindenburg; is No. 1 Wilhelm? Perhaps he used it to get over Shap on his way to the Lake District.

Actually, I think the prop is two-bladed, but at an acute dihedral.

The two-tone horn is an elegant touch.
