British "Porpoise" Ammunition Sledge
British "Porpoise" Ammunition Sledge 
Concern over the need to have ample ammunition of all types available on the beaches following the landings on D-Day lead to the ingenious development of this ammunition sledge.

This 13.5 feet long shallow metal sledge had two watertight compartments and carried a varied range of ammunition which could include a mixture of either .30cal, 50cal. 7.92mm , 6pdr.,17pdr., 25pdr. 75mm, 95mm or 105mm shells.

They were towed behind most of the British and Canadian assault vehicles throughout D-Day including the Churchill AVRE's, Cromwells, Centaurs, Deep Wading Shermans Mk. III, Mk.V & Firefly Vc and the M7 Priest & Sexton SP's.

Attatched to the towing vehicle via telescopic towbars, they sat under the vehicle on the LCT's before being dragged onto the beaches and dropped above the high water line in areas already cleared by Flail Tanks. From here they were to be attatched to Halftracks for deployment, however the towing AFV often dragged them off the beaches and inland.
