Land Mattress Rocket Troop (BBX77)

Land Mattress Rocket Troop (BBX77)
includes four Land Mattress Rocket Launchers with crew.

The Land Mattress rocket launcher system was developed from the Royal Navy Mattress project. It didn’t take long for the Canadian Royal Artillery to adopt them by converting otherwise idle light anti-aircraft batteries into rocket launcher units.

Bulge British
Following the breakout from Normandy in August 1944, the British Army made some of the fastest advances in history, racing across northern France and Belgium.  When German resistance stiffened in the Netherlands, the British paused briefly to resupply, then set out again.  The armoured divisions of Operation Garden pushed North to where Operation Market's 1st Airborne Division held a precarious foothold across the Rhine, only to be stopped by the revitalised German Army.  With the days of rapid advances over, the British and Canadian Armies turned to clear the Scheldt Estuary to open the vital supply port of Antwerp, opening it to shipping in November 1944.
