Tony...great find for you and your dad!!! I bet that the jeep crew took the loading channels so that they can use them to cross ditches.

PS - my wife's grandfather was with the 377th Parachute Field Artillery/101st Airborne Division during the war. He made every combat mission...both jumping and as a glider rider. Also please tell your dad 'many thanks' from me. My mom grew up in Metz, France during the war. Your dad's service, along with all WWII veterans helped to free many people from oppression.
