An interesting comment on the Shorland SB300

It’s always rewarding to have first hand accounts passed on. This morning, Michael Howes made this interesting and quite frightening comment on one of the images of the Shorland SB300 in Defence of the Realm’s galleries.

I would like to thank Michael for this informative comment and share it with everyone.

On a similar matter I would like to once again thank everyone who has read, liked, subscribed, commented or contributed to Defence of the Realm since its inception. 2015 is Defence of the Realm’s first full year and what a year it has been. I have learned so much myself working on articles and keeping up to date with the latest news but more importantly I have made several friends along the way who now get repeatedly pestered by me on Twitter.

Season’s greetings to you all.

Tony Wilkins

  1. Army Snatch L/Rs in the 70s & 80s had no armour apart from the Macrolon shell. Good enough to stop bricks and bottles but not bullets of any calibre. It also made the vehicles very unstable to drive. I recall three RTAs where crews suffered injury due to vehicles overturning.
