MapleLeafUp.nl Main Web
MAPLE LEAF UP is a forum dedicated
to perpetuating the memory of the all-volunteer Canadian Army Overseas in World
War II. Our website went online somewhere in 1998, and we ran a free-hosted
forum since. Our own dedicated forum went online in 2003 and is still going
strong, providing an invaluable resource for the recovery, restoration and
preservation of the artifacts of this unique period in Canadian history.
Note: some of my websites can still be
found on reiterations of Geocities and other free-hosting sites. Also, some
websites and printed magazines shamelessly copied my web pages and/or its
contents. As I am the original author all copyrights remain with me,
regardless of what is claimed by the publishers of said websites or printed
The Sherman M4 Medium Tank series
and their related AFVs are my favourite WW-2
vehicles. Over the years I have studied many surviving examples, taking note
of the bewildering array of variants and production changes. This hobby
gradually shifted into doing some research into their manufacture,
(continuing) use and modification. And at some stage, as anyone with the same
hobby can tell, one is bound to get their hands dirty on some of them.
My site about Canadian Military Pattern (CMP) vehicles, including my Ford F15A.
A page dedicated to the Volkswagen type 181 Mehrzweckwagen - Kübel - Pescaccia - Safari - Thing and type 182 Trekker. Compared to the VW Beetle and Bus, there is surprisingly little information on the VW 181 that is readily available. The VW 181 Facts & Figures are compiled from various sources in print, the Internet and interest groups. They are regularly updated.
Dedicated to the military vehicles
built by the Marmon-Herrington Company, Inc. Also, the vehicles converted
with All-Wheel Drive Conversion kits for military use are featured here.
A motley collection of information
about the T16 Universal Carrier, with a link to "A brief history of
the T-16 Carrier" on The Carrier Platoon web site.
