Default Mk 1 attempt

Guys,

Had some pieces brazed together that I had assembled for a key to open the escape hatches from the outside.

Like the history of the Lynx, my version works, but could be better. I think that my Mk 2 version will take a page from Alastair's book and have a larger handle for better leverage.

Guys,

My son Patrick donated a nice 1943 Long Branch Lee Enfield to the Lynx, great step forward for the kit.

Also got a new "to me" vintage picture of a Lynx 11, when the RCDs were the reconnaissance regiment for the 1st Canadian corps.

Guys,

First really nice day this spring. Couldn't resist, fired up the Lynx and went for a jaunt. My block is 9 kms long, just nice to properly warm up the engine. Our local farmers have yet to work their fields, so we got in some cross country time through some fields and a wood lot as well. Continue to be pleasantly surprised at how nimble and quick the Lynx is for it's size. I suspect that the my grin will take several weeks to wear off.

Peter

Default Loose Lynx seen in Cherry Valley!

Wow! Peter, the Lynx looks really good in the woods! I think you need to now round out the photo portfolio - how about a bit (whole lot) of mud and maybe a stream or creek crossing? You might need a co-driver for that! Keep up the great work and Keep them rolling!
Cheers,

Guys,

Thank you for the positive comments. Now thanks to Richard Hatkoski, the Lynx now has a nice Dewat Inglis Bren Mk 11. The ride was part of the deal. The two of us now have grins that seem etched on.

Peter

Well done guys.......excellent kit for the Lynx!

Last weekend I noticed the picture attached, showing some serious firepower on a Lynx. A .50 and .30 on one mount(?)

Default What are the odds ?

Alex,

Once again, thanks for the "new to me" picture of a Lynx 11, in service during WW 11. I don't know the odds, but "Marco" posted two period pictures of the same Lynx 11, on posts 255 through 258, back in November 2015. Being realistic, my Lynx will never end up with this array of firepower, but I do dream of a pintle mounted 0.30 some day.

Thanks, Peter

Jordan will interested in the link that you posted, I noticed on page 5 a nice picture of an Otter.

Peter,

I completely missed those! I did have a quick look to see if the picture had already been posted before, but other than dropping the thread into a google search, I haven't found an easy way to do so.


I have changed the link above to a more direct link to their WW2 images, which should make is easier for the non-Dutch speakers to scroll through the images.

Alex

Default Silent Tribute

Guys,

Since all our public D Day events have been cancelled due to the Covid 19 outbreak, I decided to place the Lynx at the end of our drive for the day.

Lest we forget, Peter

Guys,

Quietest Canada Day in my memory. Parked the Lynx at the end of the driveway, where she flew the flag.

Default Social bubble

Guys,

With the relaxing of our Covid guidelines, our social bubble expanded over the weekend. My brother in law visited with his lady friend, Wendy. Needless to say this resulted in a spin in the Lynx.

Default Tribute

Guys,

The Lynx and I had the privilege of participating in a tribute for Ed Stafford. Ed was a Trooper with the Governor General's Horse Guards during the Italian campaign and served on Lynx's. The Warriors Day Memorial parade in which Ed normally participates was cancelled this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic, so the decision was made to bring a convoy of military vehicles to Ed, as a surprise tribute.

Ed is a fit 99 year old veteran, who not only took a spin "around the block" in the Lynx, but went on to commandeer a current TAP-V from the Governor General"s Horse Guards. (pictured under Ed's outstretched right arm).

My thanks to our OMVA secretary, Terry Witiuk, for organizing the event, Hagerty Insurance for covering expenses, and Robin Craig for the logistics of transporting the Lynx.

Peter

Just needed a break. Fired up the Lynx and spent a few hours running through our neighbors woodlots and trails. Had a great time.

Awesome! It's been a tough year. Any opportunity to get your MV out for a drive is great. Peter...the work that you've put into Mita is simply amazing. Maybe 2021 will be the year that I can enjoy a ride in her. All the best and look forward to meeting up again!
