Default Postwar Loyd Users

Which contries used Loyd carriers following WW2 and do we know when the final ones went out of service?
I understand that the Belgium Army used them (mine were used my them), the Dutch and presumably the British army...
Does anyone know if a specific 'Loyd Carrier' book has been printed? The Watson Carrier series covers the Loyd in some detail but understandably no post war detail is included. I am interested to discover when mine may have been put out on the range Nr Malmedy (Elsenborn Ridge) and in what configuration.

Why not contact the Brussells Tank Museum, they might be able to help with info on use by the Belgian Army.

Hello,

Norway and Denmark also used Loyd's after the war (mine came from Norway)
Also the Netherlands.

Dont have postwar info.

More to the point - what were the WD Nos of those that were passed on to these countries - bet they have the details somewhere...
