I'm sure that @Halftrack will think this is in the wrong thread :)

“1945- U.S. troops sit in the “jeep wrecker” they created and with which they tow in jeeps that have run into trouble on the Western Front.”

A question that has interested me but I have not been able to find what I think is the right answer.

My uncle was in 1/7 Queen's part ot 131 Queen's Bgde of 7th Armoured div.

They traveled around in TCVs (troop carrying vehicle). There are lots of referenced to TCVs but no pictures, ie this is a TCV. Was it just a truck with seats or a purpose built truck for motor inf?

Also many centuries ago when I was a young soldier I joined my Bn in Bulford which was air portable. The mortars had 1/4 ton LR with the mortars strapped to the bonnet but I have not seen any pictures of LR like this since. Was it a local mod or just not common.

TCV was the tla for a GS truck,1/4 ton? 1/2 or 3/4 maybe or even 1ton but no 1/4 ton.
