Carden Loyd Mk IV with crew
Carden Loyd Mk IV with crew. Produced from 1927, 450 built. Used by British forces in May-June 1940, opposing the German forces. Alongside the more famous ‘Bren carrier’, around 200 tankettes took part in the defense of the Dyle-Namur line (in Belgium). Some Mark VIs fielded by Dutch units also saw action. Nearly all were left behind at Dunkirk. The remainder, former training vehicles and auxiliaries were mobilized to face the awaited German invasion of the British mainland in July-August. Perfect for AVBCW.
