Vickers Utility Tractors, Loyd Carriers, 2Pounder Carriers
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Note these are from Vimy House before it was moved to storage at new museum. Very dark cramped conditions made it tough to get good all round photo coverage.

Thanks to Don Allen for sharing some of his photos, too.
We're not exactly sure where the carrier is these days...

I've seen photos with a German 37mm bodged onto a Bren/Universal, but never a 6pdr! That must've rattled it when it was fired- assuming it's not a later addition, which it may be, as the colours & state of preservation of the gun & carrier are quite different.

You're right- my photo notes actually said 6-pounder on Universal carrier...

Thanks for pointing that out.

And I thought it was going to be a mock up. Is that a real PzII turret?

Hello,

the Loyd wreck and Panzer II turret are in the same French collection. The Loyd carrier is this one (the good one) :

I have a few pics of the Universal Carrier with the 2 Pdr from the Canadian War Museum. At the moment it is in storage and is hard to get to. Once it becomes available I will put mor pictures up on my Photobucket site.
Be advised that this is not one of the original Canadian 2 Pdr carriers (they are all gone to a better furnace) but a converted infantry carrier.

That's a 6pdr, not a 2pdr.
Here's a 2pdr on a U/C.

And here's a 6pdr.

The shield is from a 6-pdr. The gun itself is a 2-pdr.
