GBR302 Armoured Autocar Section

Armoured Autocar Section (GBR302)
Includes two Armoured Autocars.

Major Raymond Brutinel, a successful French businessman who had immigrated to Canada before the outbreak of the war, organised and raised a mobile machine-gun unit with private funds. He organised armoured trucks to be built by the American Auto Car company. Each Autocar had an open-topped armoured box with an angled front plate and drop sides. The machine guns were pedestal-mounted and capable of firing over the sides of the vehicle. The machine-guns could also be dismounted for ground use.

1918 saw great changes in the warfare of the Western Front. Russia pulled out of the war, freeing thousands more German troops to push the Allies back huge distances. The Allied counteroffensives, with the new tanks, evolving tactics, and the arrival of the Americans, forced the Germans back towards their own borders and defeat.
