Hello Paul,

Glad you like the pictures.

Normal wisdom is right, the rungs or hand rails were not fitted to Kangaroos. But in practice, Gun Towers were converted into Armoured Personnel Carriers (see Mark Tonner's recent articles on this subject), of which the hand rails and rear towing hook were not removed. So externally at least they still looked like Gun Towers, but were in facts APCs.

The B&W photos show what had to be an absolutely rare beast, A Kangaroo made from a Ram with the Wright version of the radial engine (the external mufflers are the giveaway). Given that these needed 100 Octane gas, they would have been a bear to find gas for in the field with everything else using 87 octane. Would not have thought any were converted to 'Roos for that reason, especially given the supply situation in late 44.
I understand your excitement, but I cannot see such a special vehicle with special maintenance needs surviving in the field in 1944.

As pointed out by David Herbert - a veritable Ram expert I might add - chances are that this late during the war, Wright R975-EC2 engines would have been replaced by R975-C1 (or -C4) radial engines, simply because they would no longer be supported by the supply system. And changing them over was relatively easily: if not during conversion, then by the time the original R975-EC2 was worn out, it would have to be replaced by a -C1, simply because EC-2's were no longer to be had from store supplies.

Great to know,. I was under the impression that the arrangement of the piping and ducting in the C1s was sufficiently different that their air cleaners _had_ to be moved outside, so a tank with the internal air cleaners would _have_ to be fitted with the Wright. Cool to find out this isn't true. Thanks a bunch!

Default Battle at ‘t Woold

Thanks for the extensive selection, Kevin.

Here is a write up on the Battle at ‘t Woold I made for the Sherman Register page a while ago:

Quote:
On 30 March 1945, ‘F’ Squadron of British 49th Armoured Personnel Carrier Regiment lifted infantry of the Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry Regiment into action. The British Kangaroo Regiment had just added a third fighting Squadron of Kangaroos the week before, converting 52nd Royal Tank Regiment to ‘F’ Squadron 49APCR. The inexperienced troop met stiff resistance at ‘t Woold, near Winterswijk, The Netherlands.

Eight of their Ram Kangaroos were knocked as well as a Stuart Tank that was leading the column. First disabling the leading Stuart, then the rearmost Kangaroo. The column of armour, traveling on a raised roadbed near the village of Winterswijk, was picked off one by one by a lone German ’StuG III’ 75mm tank destroyer. Only one Kangaroo in the column managed to escape.

It was the inexperienced troop’s first taste of combat which resulted in one Kangaroo crewman killed (Cpl. Webber) as well as several infantrymen of the Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry. Some burned alive in the disabled Kangaroos.

With credits to:
- the Canadian Kangaroo Regiment Association and Archives for the historic background
- and Klaas Meijer (@klaasm67) for the pictures.

Interesting, a Stuart VI in that last picture, you don’t see that many photos of those in Commonwealth service, AFAIK.

There are several pictures of these in Commonwealth service in late 1944/early 1945....Canadian, as well as Polish and also British, you will find a couple of them in the pictures taken in Bergen op Zoom oct 1944, and also Eelde in 1945, so in my opinion pictures of these aren't that rare.....but interesting nonetheless!

This is a clear example of why I don't like colorized black and white footage.......someone made a guesstimate about the colour of the RAM.....brown, green? Or was it red?

Default Colourized Photographs

I agree with Alex, I despise colourized photographs as I consider them to be nothing more then a guess by the 'artist'. They actually distract from the historical record and unfortunately now show up everywhere with little to no information stating that the image has been altered. The worst thing is that the museum community, the people who should know better, have bought into the colourization process.

The scale of issue for Canadian armoured regiments, like the Sherbrooke Fusilier Regiment (27th Canadian Armoured Regiment) was a recce troop of as many as 11 Stuarts. They were seldom photographed because they were kept quite busy and not as numerous as the Shermans!

Two mentions in the latest regimental history bear repeating. In the race from Falaise to the Seine River, the SFR recce troop were packet escorts. Command wanted to keep the steel tracked tracks off the undamaged roads, and ordered the columns to skirt along field edges and forest tracks. With few maps, the Stuarts shepherded the tanks from one form-up point to the next. The other was very late in the war when the road network up on the North Sea Coast was too soft and narrow for Shermans. Recce troop with attachments lifted a company-minus sized infantry force onto their objective.

Ram Kangaroo CT-40372 "DIANA" of the 49th Armoured Personnel Carrier Regiment. One can tell they are British as the crew is using an umbrella to keep the weather at bay ;-)

CT-40372 was Struck Off Strength from Canadian stocks to the British in October 1944.

Hi Kevin, the named list of the seven knocked out Kangaroos at Winterswijk came from a local Dutch historian who also had access to primary documents, accounts and photos (many of which have already been posted here).

I cannot confirm photos of the four names mentioned above. There are photos of a couple other hulls, but the names painted on them cannot be made out clearly.

This hull (T11), I believe, is either Terror or Tiger. According to a detailed infantry account, this kangaroo brewed up immediately and a number of the infantry passengers were burned badly, including one burned to death. Of the kangaroo crewmen in this column, 8 ORs were wounded and Sgt. KFA Webber was killed. In the photo, you can see another Kangaroo in the upper right corner, near a farm building. That is CT40694 Tarantula.

Bill.

Hi Bill thanks for replying. So do you think that I would be safe in taking the names as accurate., if so I will add them to my database name list and credited to you.

I have tried manipulating the photo but the name is too blurred to be sure it could TAUNT or TERROR but impossible to be sure.

Cheers

Kevin

Yes, I think you could take them as accurate, considering it was from a primary source and what little photographic evidence there is, corroborates part of the list.

I was going through the 49APCR war diary the other night and found an action report for this incident that also corroborates the account from a veteran of the Ox & Bucks. Sadly, neither the 49APCR diary or the 49APCR Workshop diary records the name or census number of a single Kangaroo APC, they're actually worse than the 1CACR diaries... so really all we have to go on, are 3rd party period documents/letters and photos.

Bill.

Kevin,

I have a spread sheet detailing the known/confirmed 1CACR named APCs by Squadron and with census numbers (when known). I've not compiled such data on the 49APCR as of yet.

I will review your lists and get back to you. I do see a few minor errors in what you have.

Bill.
