BFC, small errors in CMBN & CW Manuals

Recommended Posts

An earlier post along these lines vanished, so please forgive any duplication. Noticed these typos on the fly while researching something else.

CMBN: The page 191 weapon header for the 15 cm sIG 33 reads sIG 22, but the descriptive paragraph has it right.

CW: On page 19, both the header and in the descriptive paragraph, what should read Lloyd carrier reads Loyd carrier.

Please ignore my reported CW error. The Loyd carrier is correct as written. While two "L"s is typical of the first name usage, I forgot that the Loyd here was the last name of one of the creators of the Carden Loyd tankette.


"The Carden Loyd tankette came about from an idea started, as a private project, by the British military engineer and tank strategist Major Giffard LeQuesne Martel. He built a one-man tank in his garage from various parts and showed it to the War Office in the mid-1920s. With the publication of the idea, other companies produced their own interpretations of the idea. One of these was Carden-Loyd Tractors Ltd, a firm founded by Sir John Carden and Vivian Loyd and later purchased by Vickers-Armstrongs. Besides one-man vehicles they also proposed two-man vehicles which turned out to be a more effective and popular idea. Vickers-Armstrongs manufactured and marketed vehicles of the latter type worldwide.

Considered a reconnaissance vehicle and a mobile machine gun position, the Mark VI was the final stage of development of the Carden Loyd series of tankettes.

The Carden Loyd tankette was the prototype for the Universal Carrier."
