    Hi all
    As the guys who should know im coming here asking a favour.
    Trying to gauge opinion from anyone who has used these type of mounts on the various trucks in service. Preferably in anger rather than up t'range but of course all info is welcome.
    Please pm me if there is anything that should be not in the public domain.
    Thanks in advance

    Is it just me or does the word "ring" have inherent comedy value (especially if you mount them!)

    I think I'm right in saying 7 Tpt Regt were the first Unit to fit (and use) capola mounts, if this is an official enquiry you could contact the OpsO. Failing this try 2 LSR.

    Did see ring mounts in use on Telic 6 (DAF, Bedford and DROPS). Seemed like the way ahead.

    On what vehicles? Ring mounts were issued and used extensively during GW1.
