No problem.Okay thank you both.
This is quite likely to be true. The L3 l.f. continued in use up until 1943. It was a useful vehicle for what it was designed to do: bring a flame thrower into the fight. The machine-gun version was quickly withdrawn from frontline service because they couldn't provide anything useful to the fight except sacrifice their crews.N.Africa- " Two companies get off their motor lorries and extend in battle order. All sorts of light signals go up - green, white, red. The flares hiss down on our own MGs. It is already too late to take aim. Well, the attack is a failure. The little Fiat Ansaldos go up in front with flamethrowers in order to clean up the triangle. Long streaks of flame, thick smoke, filthy stink. we provide cover until 2345 hours, then retire through the gap. It is a mad drive through the dust. At 0300 hours have snack beside the tank. 24 hours shut up in the tank, with frightful cramp as a result - and thirsty!"
