Response to Re: Lead found

 

Nelson,
You triggered a quick dive in to the lend-lease documents I have with your remark on high speeding the limbers.

Of course there may have been other sources of obtaining the MP kits, but the only recipient of MP high speed kits through lend-lease was the British Empire with 233 complete Martin Parry adapters delivered. The lend-lease list specifically also mentions the delivery of 16 "Martin Parry adapters for 75mm trailers"...getting closer? We dont know of course which part of the Empire was the beneficiary...and no 3 inch guns are mentioned... but the number is at odds with the amount of trailers and 75mm guns delivered to the Empire.
None were delivered to the Dutch, who by the way already used the Buquor adapter on their 75mm Krupp guns.
