First of all can I apologise that I cannot speak French. I am so sorry I cannot phrase my question in the language of tehe forum - I hope you might forgive this indiscretion..

I am building a scale model scene based on La 2ème Division Blindée de Leclerc - I will have a M4A2 Sherman, a Jeep and I also wanted to include a transport truck.

Can any of the forum members tell me if the American GMC CCKW 353 was used by the division? Links to any photographs would eb greatly appreciated...

Once again - I do apologise that I cannot speak French. I hope you will not be offended by my asking this question in English.

Best Regards, Steve

Hello Steve,

In your title you write 535 and in your text you write 353! Which is the good number?
Nevertheless, both were used by the 2eDB ["Free French" 2nd Armored Division] but for transportation of fuel, ammunition or pieces and parts for the vehicles of the 2eDB. As you know, the 2eDB was made of different units (infantry, artillery, tanks, etc...) and each unit was made of sub-units among which some had GMC trucks used to perform tasks as mentioned above. Yes, I have several photos of GMC trucks of the 2eDB and Alain EYMARD, who wrote a book about the organisation of the 2eDB, has some also, I will see with him if he agrees to send you copies.

Best regards
Larry

Apologies! Embarassed

I meant '353' of course.

If you have photos and can arrange copies I would be so grateful! That would be wonderful reference for my project.
