In the late 50s early 60s, 2RTR were in Libya equipped with Saladins Saracens and Ferrets. The LAD were using M5/9 half tracks.
On the forum I'm on, they've posted colour photos. I'll try and down load some and post some on here. Sand painted vehicles, some of the clothing the boys were wearing is quite ecleptic!

Was the ferret turret turned by a handle or by shoving it around?

The TM 2/6 is actually just a 2/3 with a 2/6 turret that they dropped on.

With a winder like the fox?
No, just grab the .30 pistol grip and whiz around, the .30 sight was useless as you could never find the graticle and often the illumination bulb had fused. At least if you smoked you could fix the C13 fuse with your silver paper.

Oh how I loved my Saladin, I was heart broken when we had to drive her to Ludgershall to hand her in.
Once at Ascot roundabout we hit a brand new Rolls Royce it tried to nip in front of us, tore a hole down one side with our front right mud guard, oik jumps out rather upset but my drive Knowsley Stev****on addressed him thus; “you scratched my Saladin’s paintwork there mate, you’ll have to pay for that”

Oik was not a happy man!

Daimler armoured car:-

My father commanded a Daimler in ww2, there was no elevation gear for the gun, the gunner just had a shoulder piece to effect elevation.

He once told me a tale of rushing a gate into a field in the bocage, only to find that the only other occupant of the field was a Tiger Mk1, luckily the Tiger has a quite slow traverse speed and they were able to speed round the field and out the gate before the huns could get a bead on them. He said it was fresh underwear all round!
