    Bren Carriers in German servie; Redux.

    Some time back there was a thread, somewhere, on this subject and i remember posting that I had read somewhere, that the Germans had used captured carriers as "scaled-uo" Goliaths, but could not find a reference.

    In the process of re-shelving a swag of stuff today, I found something.

    Bellonna Publications, A summary of the Self-propelled Weapons of teh Germanicon Army 1939-45. Published 1968-70.

    The last page before the glossary, covers recycled Bren Carriers, including the Leichte Feld Ladungstraeger 'Bren"" (e). Attributed with an introduction date of 1942.


    "Remote-controlled explosives carrier The original superstructure was removed and a new structure for control gear and charge built on".

    Obviously, if a vehicle were deployed successfully, any evidence would be widely distributed.

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle.
