  • Standing room only?

    Hi folks:

    Opening a whole thread for one "simple" question. This is about the Ram Kangaroo. From all the photos I have seen of the vehicle I cannot find any detail of seating for the troops. Were not there any or were the troopers to huddle like little gargoyles in the storage wings over the tracks?

    The link following leads to a page detailing the restoration of a Kangaroo. From the site:
    "... Neither on this nor any of the other Ram Kangaroos have I seen any traces of the benches that - according to some popular sources - were fitted for the troops to be carried. When standing inside, you realise that there is no room for benches of any sort if a full section of infantry was to be carried..."
