FDC Truck

Every piece of FDC equipment and our personal items had to fit in this 3/4 ton truck and trailer or be carried on us. When we moved any luxury things accumulated stayed. Our shower bag was an extra but IT DID NOT get left behind! This truck had radio mounts behind the bench seat so we kept in radio contact with the outside world while moving. Our charts, radial deflection fans and firing tables were stored so we could have a working FDC in a couple of minutes. The empty ammo boxes would be filled with dirt to quickly make the first layer of our bunker roof in a new Fire Support Base. Sandbags were for the upper layers and we added more sandbags every day. Bundles of new bags are in the left rear of the truck.
