Eric J. Lagerstrom, MAJ, USA (Ret).

I spent most of my life on Active Duty and training soldiers since.    I served in many countries, 5 years in Armor, 15+ in MI, being around and living in AFVs for much of 20+ years.    Ever Since, I’ve built models, researched, traveled to see, and worked on AFVs.   Your post on Matilda’s is the best researched I’ve seen outside my military sources here at NPS (Knox Library), DLI/FLC at Presidio of Monterey, and Fort Ord (OMC).    The libraries there are awesome.    Still, I have to say that you are at the top of the pile of well researched and interesting researchers.    Thank you and I look forward to reading more of your research.    Iron Horsemen!
