Hobart's Funnies
« on: June 06, 2020, 07:55:53 PM »
As it's 6th June, I thought I'd stick some Normandy stuff on the blog, so here are Hobart's Funnies...

Nicely done.
I often wondered with things like the Funnies, why no-one thought of
updating the Mantlet.  Tyres & maybe fold out 'flaps' would provide
some cover. Have them in the front of the landing craft, then
when the ramp comes down push it out (push out the 'flaps') &
advance up the beach.

Now you come to mention it, I think I've seen some trial photos of something exactly like that, though it may have been WW1-vintage (the memory is very hazy).

Me too.  They're certainly not in anything I've got here.
