Dear all, I found this image on the web and I am wondering what is this box for - the one in the place of extra tank of the left side?
Do you have other images of this vehicle?

If you mean the large box on the bottom, it is a standard stowage box fitted on all Stags. If you mean the shallower box above it (assuming it is a box, it could be a baulk of wood) then it's a stowage box the crew added. Exactly what is in it is up to the crew. Boxes such as this or steel frames were almost universally added by crews in the 12th Manitoba Dragoons in NW Europe. They almost never fitted the extra tanks and some of their vehicles carried truely staggering amounts of additonal stowage on any available spot.

I am just wondering how it was fixed to that area. Would it be similar to the one that was fit in the back of the vehicle between the exhausts?

I'm pretty certain the fixed stowage boxes didn't have lids as they had an opening front hinged at the bottom.

I'll go with Ken here.
There are two stiffeners attached to the top of the (bottom) box to mount the fuel drums on. hey're clearly visible between the two boxes.

I also can see the stiffeners on the top of the bottom box. I am wondering about how the small box that is on top of these stiffeners was mounted and what kind of box it can be.

I am not talking about the stowage box that was on all Staghounds Mk.I, I am talking about the one on top of that box in the place of extra tank.


Could it be the same as on this image?

Hi:

I think that box is the box for tire chains that is normally on the rear plate between the exhausts, just repositioned. I'm not sure that it's the same box seen in your other photo.

Cheers,

Scott
