|Some 5000 plus Australian built carriers were made in a number of variants. Here's a selection of pictures, starting with some I took in the 1970s.|
|(Above and below) This LP2A I photographed in the early 1970s in Fieglins Timberyard, Nunawading. This almost uncut hull would make a nice restoration project if it were still around.||Most of the engine cover is still on this Carrier seen in Trentham, 1973.
The position of the seat marks this as a Strickland carrier conversion.
|Also at Fieglins.|
|Gilderoy, 1972.||The same carrier as above.|
|Bill Drew's yard, 1974.||Fieglins, 1972.|
|Near Warburton, 1972 (above and lower 2 images). This is also a Strickland conversion.||Yarra Junction.|
|Note the cleats for added traction. The curved shape of the cuts to the armour are distinctive.|
|4 pictures taken in 1974 at Barker's Garage, Wesburn. That's my father in the background.|
|British built Carrier, 1972. Ballan area. Nearby were the remains of this cut down carrier.|
|Half track conversion, Warburton, 1971, using a CMP winch and parts of the fairleads. Note the additional mud cleats on the tracks.|
|Specialised timber snigging conversion. This is not a Strickland conversion.|
