Thanks for the comments As to markings, I mentioned this to Johann Lexell of Bison Decals the other day and they're looking at the possibility of doing some South African markings..

It's great top see Commonwealth units getting covered in more detail. I only hvae two of their books at present both of which are of very high quality.

Another one for the buy list.

I like this series of books and if this is anything like the one on New Zealand Armour then it'll be pretty good.

Jim Does it have any photos showing the big Stowage box some of the South African Shermans carried on their Glacis plate?

Thanks for the review, Jim.

It may be interesting to note that the author is a member of Armorama. His callsign is 'mechinf'. (Not to be confused with my callsign Mech_Inf )
